Cathy's subject matter is diverse but is inspired primarily by Mother Nature, her work in the Canadian Arctic and travels around the world. More recently, Cathy has focused on the west coast of Vancouver Island easily accessible for a painter who wants to capture the eternally changing seascapes.
While wheel work does make a large portion of her pieces, a true passion for sculpture and hand-building remains a strong element in her style. Emphasis on plate wares comes from her passion for the culinary arts, her works can be found in Ucluelet and Tofino at Long Beach Lodge Resort, Merge Artisan Gallery, The Wreckage and Pina.
Jen McLeod is a photographer focused on emotive images and intense connections. She has focused primarily on portrait photography for many years, but moving to Ucluelet in 2017 kindled an interest in landscape photography. She draws inspiration from her children and her exquisite surroundings.
