I am a professional west coast painter with a passion for landscape. I grew up in the Comox Valley, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and the west coast landscape continues to be the main creative inspiration for many of my paintings.

Come and meet Pat Carney at the Laughing Oyster Bookshop on Mothers’ Day – Sunday May 14, 1:00 – 3:00. She and the book’s artist, Bev Byerley (cover and inside sketches) will enjoy introducing you to these stories about some of the unnamed west coast characters we will all recognize.
