Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Oct. 11 to Dec. 9, 2016

After recovering from a serious car accident while living in Kelowna, BC, during which I encountered a near death/out-of-body experience, I chose to go back to university and study art for five years.

Graduating from UBC Okanagan campus in 2000, I continued to travel and paint in many beautiful environments, under adverse conditions.

Over the last 16 years, I have backpacked through many amazing countries in South East Asia, painting and creating art as I travelled.

During the last five years I have continued to paint in Havana, Cuba, making two trips each year.

This exhibition includes a variety of paintings created in various locations and studios throughout Havana between 2012 and 2016.

Havana, Cuba is an amazing place. The paintings are bold: rich in colour, high in energy – capturing the moment, the essence of the person, in their distinct environment. The portraits make a rich statement about the resilience and beauty of the Cuban People.
