Emily Carr EvolutionTruly delighted by the interest in Emily Carr here in my new home village. I’ve been asked to talk about Carr’s art and not being any sort of art expert, I’ve decided to discuss the evolution of her work based on the influence of events in her life.

2016-09-17 EventIf you’re going to be in Victoria on September 17, I’d love to see you at Emily Carr House. Great opportunity to chat about Emily and her travels, with readings from Book Two of the trilogy, Emily Carr’s BC: Northern BC & Haida Gwaii. This terrific event is hosted by Jan Ross, curator of Emily Carr House, with free admission sponsored by the Victoria Foundation as part of their Victoria Foundation Day. I’m delighted to be talking about Emily’s travels against the backdrop of Jen Burgess’ art in her exhibition “on a Tangent Tear.”
Hope to see you there.

IMG_6924One of the best things about book signing events is meeting up with old friends you haven’t seen for awhile, especially when they’ve gone to a lot of trouble to attend. Another great thing is being hosted by great independent bookstores like Mosaic Books in Kelowna. Of course, the biggest highlight is getting to talk to a whole lot of people about Emily Carr’s BC.

Emily Carr’s BC: Northern BC & Haida Gwaii

Website Media PageDelighted to announce the launch of Book Two in the Emily Carr’s BC trilogy. This time I follow Emily on the path of her great northern expeditions of 1912 and 1928, both of which followed pivotal developments in her career and which featured so large in her work – then and in later years. Travelling through Northern BC’s Skeena and Naas River country and the islands of Haida Gwaii, I met amazing and talented people, marvelled at unparalleled scenery and came away wanting to return.
