In September I moved Shibang from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Bowen Island, British Columbia. It was one of the biggest moves in distance that you can make in Canada and now we’re here on the other coast. Bowen Island has a population of about 4000, including many artists and is a 20 min ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, which is a 20 min drive to downtown Vancouver (when the traffic’s good).
Here are some photos of the island and all of it’s natural beauty. I’m definitely inspired and in awe of how huge the trees are. Walks here are like hikes, you can see the stars at night and Vancouver is just a short distance away.
This is Bowen Island as seen on the ferry ride back at sunset.
My studio is up and running, the holiday show season is just around the corner starting with Circle Craft at The Vancouver Convention Centre next week.
