These remarkable pieces capture a variety of styles from to realistic to expressionist, across a range of media including oil, watercolour, acrylic & print making.

    Theses stunning works of art were used to create a 2022 calendar that is being used as a promotional & fundraising tool for the North Shore Culture Compass. Initiated by  North Van Arts, the Culture Compass is an interactive, online map showcasing the art & cultural diversity of the North Shore, including the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver, the Squamish Nation & the Tsleil-Waututh Nation.

    Using the Culture Compass you can discover local arts & culture organizations, public art, festivals & events, destinations of cultural & natural heritage & so much more!
