Artist’s Statement: Arbutus trees used to be common on Vancouver Island, but with the introduction of Scotch broom, which requires the same growing conditions, arbutus are being crowded out. I hope Sea Dreams shows how beautiful these trees were. I am dreaming of how they used to be, sentinels of the beaches.
