With my paintings I want to give you a place to go

~ similar to the way we can ‘travel’ when we listen to music ~

I want to give you a place where you can rest your eyes and excite your soul,

open your heart and soothe your nerves.

A view of healing green magic.

If you are unable to spend time in a forest today . . . let me take you there; come along with me.

Come, let’s go for a walk together, in the forest . . .


This Inland Temperate Rainforest in the interior of British Columbia, Canada,

is the only one of its kind on Earth, a wet belt resulting from weather systems,

laden with precipitation from the Pacific Ocean almost 500 miles away,

rising over the coastal mountains and bringing down a lot of snow

and a fair bit of rain when they come up against the heights of these

Columbia and Rocky Mountain Ranges.

It is a lush and diverse ecosystem, boasting a huge variety of species of trees, mosses, ferns and lichens.
