West Coast Photography

It is here that I find my solace.

Peering into tidal pools, marvelling at the microcosm of life that abounds. Witnessing sunrise cast its emerging glow over a liquid horizon. Gazing upwards amongst a triumph of cedars to recognize their connection, their history, to this sacred place. In my photography the West Coast serves as my willing muse – Ucluelet’s tempestuous coastline; Port Renfrew’s sensual abundance; the Salish Sea’s Gulf Island sanctuaries; Oregon’s immense, awe-inspiring shore; the wild nooks disguised in plain sight within Victoria’s cityscape. I believe that amid the haste of urban life, we crave visual reminders that we are connected to something bigger, something infinitely simpler. I share my photography with you who are nostalgic for your West Coast roots, you who want to transport the outside in, you who yearn to remain plugged into the world beyond walls. Thank you for supporting my passion.
