My studio is located in the Cowichan Valley, near Cobble Hill mountain and the village of Cobble Hill, BC Canada. Cobble Hill inhabits a coastal plain that includes the Cowichan and Chemainus River deltas.
With gratitude, I acknowledge that for thousands of years the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka'wakw peoples have walked gently on the unceded territories where I now live, work, and play. I honour and respect and thank them for their hospitality.
The First Nations Coast Salish named the area Quw’utsun’ or Cowichan, meaning “land warmed by the sun.’’
