Bowen Island, British Columbia is a special place to me, especially because of the opportunity it has given me to spend time with my extended family.
Last summer my cousin’s daughter (7 at the time) prepared this creation for me. She found a tiny crab and delicately positioned it in a mussel shell. The whole thing was only 3 or 4 cm wide. I painted it.
Four years ago I made a short animation dedicated to some of my other cousins. It was created with scanned watercolour paintings.
