POWER AND MAGIC IN THE PACIFIC RIM “Power and Magic in the Pacific Rim” is a series of paintings that I created when I moved to the west coast of Vancouver Island in 2001. I had been travelling and searching for several years at this point in my life and the magnificent Pacific Rim of BC inspired me! These paintings reflect the sheer bliss that I felt as I met wonderful people, explored old growth rain forests, and wandered the coastline of this magical area. They are fun, dynamic paintings that breathe inspiration and exude an inquisitive sense of  wonder.
