Born and raised in Sooke, BC, Jill Warne’s creativity has always been inspired by the nature and spirit of southern Vancouver Island. She studied visual arts at Camosun College and then completed a degree in History and English Literature.
Working predominantly in acrylics, Jill studied painting and focused mainly on west coast landscapes as inspiration.
In 2017, while looking to challenge herself by working in new media, Jill found polymer clay as an interesting alternative, and began to apply some of the style and techniques she had developed, in landscape painting, to layering and creating depth in miniature clay creations based on familiar locations, such as Whiffin Spit and Sombrio Beach.
Learning metal work came next and West Coast Cameos was formed. Drawing from her childhood home and love of the west coast environment, Jill then created collections also inspired by local floral and fauna. Jill has worked to represent the beauty and soul of her island home.
I was born in Mozambique, Africa, and spent my childhood there. Later, I moved to Europe and studied in Portugal, Germany, England, and Denmark. Where I did a couple of Bachelor degrees, Fine arts and Design.
A few years ago I moved to Canada with my family. For several months I would get up really early, get on my bicycle and find subjects for my photos: parks, animals, people, streets and buildings, anything that had some unusual light or feature. I was enjoying it a lot! It was on one of those outings that I came across the Lapidary Club. I was very curious and the members of the club were so welcoming, that after a few hours on the cutting wheels I was in love! I had always loved to work with stone and metals, but working with gemstones was even more interesting. I studied under goldsmith/artist Tom Schlegel, whom was so generous he allowed me to use his fully equipped studio until I had enough resources to have my own. For two years I studied with him. It was a pleasure and a challenge. Lisa Elser, Tom’s wife is a famous artist, she is one of the crème de la crème faceters. She taught me how to facet and again, she too let me use her equipment. Life is opportunity and fortune, and I have been most fortunate in finding the right people, willing to help and to give.
I have been working independently for 11 years now, and selling at arts & crafts shows as well as rock and gem shows. I make one of a kind pieces. Each piece is unique and has a story to tell.

Tofino based artist, Mei, has been creating unique expressions of art since 2015. Self taught, she discovered a unique painting process that is reminiscent of cloud gazing and inspired by her wild imagination. After dropping a multitude of watercolors onto paper, she lets them dry as shapes and images reveal themselves to her. Trusting the process, she then traces the images and creatures, which create one-of-a-kind illustrations. Just as each painting evolves and expresses her current state of mind, she hopes viewers will find their own unique story reflected.
In addition to her watercolor illustrations, she infuses her art with nature through working with local Vancouver Island wood and wild flowers from Tofino to create botanical pieces of art to hang on a wall, a table centrepiece, a hanging mobile, or a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece.

We are a small company located on beautiful Salt Spring Island in British Columbia. We started over 20 years ago with a vision to make traditional Indian spice mixtures accessible to the western palate. Since then we have followed our taste buds to other parts of the planet: The Levant & Africa, The Far East & Far West. Our fans rave about the ability of our mixtures to transform an everyday meal into a taste sensation. We have many new spices, teas and boxes for you this year!
I’ve been a woodworking crafter for most of my working life. After “real” jobs as a teacher and wildlife biologist, the woodworking hobby became a full time occupation and my husband and I spent many years on the craft show circuit all over western Canada. Several years ago I discovered the fun of woodturning. After 40 years I still love what I do, crafting pieces of beautiful wood into items that people can use and treasure for many years.

Hornby Island Estate Winery was founded in 1999, the dream of John Grayson and Joan Costello. Hornby Island is part of the Wine Islands region – the perfect climate for growing fruits and berries. Now over two decades old, the orchard produces exquisite French and English cider apples. While the other fruits and berries are sourced from nearby local farmers. All wine making happens right on site where each and every bottle is hand-crafted.
Since 2004, Linda Rajotte has been creating her west coast inspired wearable art. She weaves, textures and forms silver to make individual, unique pieces. The ocean and the symmetry of nature provide inspiration for her. Linda has used many other mediums in her life to express her artistic talents, however, exploring the unique properties of silver, copper and now gold dominates her life in art.
Linda’s mathematical background has influenced her distinct designs. Logarithmic spirals found in nature such as ammonite fossils, shells, and sunflowers are a constant theme. All her pieces are made by hand so they carry within them the energy she uses to create
Her jewellery has been described as being original, elegant and while it has a very personal feel – inasmuch as her jewellery is an extension of her as a person – it also conveys a strong sense of its eventual wearer.

Salt fired porcelain stoneware functional dishes and sculptural pieces
Cathi’s career as a studio-trained potter began under mentor Herman Venema in Matsqui, British Columbia, in 1974. She also completed fine arts courses at Kwantlen College and the Fraser Valley College. Two Canada Council Grants provided fundingfor a 4-month residency at The Archie Bray Foundation in Montana and the Banff Centre for the Arts. Experiences with fellow ceramic artists include residencies in Canada, the US, and internationally.
Her exhibition history has been extensive over the years, being invited to participate in seven USA exhibitions at the National Clay Exhibition for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) and the ’21st Century Ceramics’ in Ohio. She was juried into the Sydney Myers International Award, Australia. In 2010, Cathi was awarded the Carter Wosk BC Achievement Award for Applied Art and Design. Among the many publications that have featured her work are Robin Hopper’s ‘Functional Pottery’ and Phil Roger’s ‘Salt-Glaze Ceramics’.
Cathi’s passion for the preservation of nature is evident in all aspects of her work. Her studio and gallery on the beautiful Cowichan River near Duncan, BC, is surrounded by the west coast rain forest that inspires her. The unique salt-fired functional stoneware and sculptural forms she creates have designs from nature that she cares about so passionately.
Cristy’s jewelry is crafted in her home studio on stunning Vancouver Island. Her work represents the world she sees around her, at home and in travel: figments of nature and geometric silhouettes, using mixed metals and wire-wrapped stones to create each exquisite piece.
Unique one of a kind hand made pottery
There are 29 steps involved to make my work. I use both the wheel and hands to make my work. My work explores the beauty of the nature, color and form. I meticulously carve and paint hundreds of little flowers and leaves to create simple yet a detailed piece. I don’t use any stencil or stamp to create my pottery so all of my work is unique and one of the kind.
Art has always been my passion. After 11 year of teaching fine art, I embarked on my life-long desire to become a potter in 1998. Now I am merging all the things I love and trying something new. I draw inspiration from past and present experiences and this is where ceramic meets fine art. My work explores the beauty of nature, color and form. I meticulously paint hundreds of little flowers, colors and symbols to create detailed mosaics representing my aesthetic and culture. The final work is unique and beautiful. I don’t use any stencil nor tools of any kind, no two pieces of my work are the same. Lynn

ALVARO SANCHEZ was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied design, music and architecture.
Since leaving Argentina he has lived in almost every country in Latin America until 1990 when he established residence on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
As a self-taught silversmith Alvaro has gathered influences, techniques and inspiration from the ancient and contemporary art of the many cultures he has been immersed in.
His work is about the balance between solid and empty spaces, between rough and smooth, between free forms and the basic geometric figures that contain them.
His artistic style has an urban Latin flavour.
Using precious metals and natural gems, Alvaro creates fine jewellery that is durable and very comfortable to wear.
Quilted items for the home in Christmas and everyday themes, included are table runners, placemats, pot holders, wall hangings, baby quilts and Christmas stockings.
