Gallery History

My first gallery opened in 1991 in a little seaside cottage in Ganges, Salt Spring Island. For five years this was also my painting studio. Over the next 10 years I also participated in “Shows” across Vancouver Island, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto. In 1996 I opened my present Gallery in The Harbour Building in Ganges.  We featured live music every Friday and Saturday night , drawn from talented musicians abundant on the island. From 2001 to 2006 I opened a beautiful gallery on Fort Street near Government St in Victoria.

Through out the years my awesome staff welcomed visitors from around the world, supported my travels and hosted receptions and art shows. They are the backbone of my Gallery success. Duart, my husband is my right hand. And from the Gallery inception knew the business behind the art, marketing and publishing of my reproductions. SolEssence Publishing is the behind the scenes arm that manages the websites, advertising, Gallery products and events.
