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.

Website Media PageDelighted to announce the launch of Book Two in the Emily Carr’s BC trilogy.

2015 TMAC Awards - Best People Photo - Nuu-chah-nulth Dancer 1Super happy that this photo of Nuu-chah-nulth dancer, Timmy Masso, from the Pacific Rim chapter of Emily Carr’s BC (Book One): Vancouver Island, was awarded Gold for Best People Photo of 2015 by TMAC, the Travel Media Association of Canada. Timmy, who is wearing a kingfisher mask carved by his brother (artist-to-watch Hjalmer Westob), performed a segment of a dance that tells the background story of his family. Thanks to Emily Carr leading me on the most fascinating journey’s around British Columbia, I met the brothers at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. It is a tremendous honour to be recognized with my ninth TMAC award.
