Canadian Explorer Wild Roots Art

Redbubble just impresses me more and more.

I upload all my digital illustrations and designs onto Redbubble where you can get them printed on art paper, artboard, acrylic blocks or stickers.

This is one of my newer prints, Canadian Explorer.

Arrival of the Art Print
Woopwoop! Unrolled, the print is 400mmX300mm (16×12) Lookin’ good!
A close up
Lightly textured 100% cotton paper – nice and thick. Plus lots of white space for you to go get it framed up.


Once you get your Art Print, you can get it professionally framed, get a frame yourself, or even glue it to foam core and prop it up (see below)

Vancouver Island

Posted on
We snuck out to Cowichan Bay and Juan de Fuca Provincial Park on Vancouver Island for a couple days and enjoyed some quiet, beautiful, sunny days on the beach/hiking/boating. I seriously can’t believe how great the weather was for us, as the last two times we went to the Island it was nothing but rain and fog, lol! Not too fun in a tent!


Our first day out there, we went to some friends of ours who live out by Cowichan Bay and they took us out crabbing. It was absolutely gorgeous out and they took us all around the area along Salt Spring Island and out to Maple Bay, etc.  I think I spent the whole time wishing I could win the lottery and live in one of those houses clinging to the hills with a little boat and dock.  Anyway, we didn’t catch much, but I had never been crabbing before, so it was neat just to watch what was going on. Plus they gave us enough crab to have a massive campfire feast on our first night camping, YUM!



After stocking up on crab, we took off to Port Renfrew and checked out Avatar and Botanical Beach Provincial Park.  Side note, I read a great article from Hakai Magazine about a female teacher named Josephine Tilden from University of Minnesota, who established a teaching station at Botanical Beach for all her female Botany students. I loved walking around the crater like beach and envisioning these enterprising women from 1901 in their dresses and boots.

The tide-pools were teaming with life, I have never seen anything like it. Every pool was completely different, filled with colorful, strange sea creatures. It was fantastic.

We camped at China Beach, in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park.  It was a nice campsite, super clean facilities and somewhat secluded camp sites. Our dog Belle came with us and OMG did she love the ocean, especially the waves, which she would run away from lol!


We realized that we didn’t pack utensils, so my husband made us chopstick using the one camping knife we found LOL!! The 3rd picture above was the Banana slug that loved Belles dog food.

Below are just some pictures of the beaches you could hike down to. The hike down to the beaches was about 2-5 km depending on the hike.
