HAIDA GWAII PASTELS

In June of 2016 I travelled to Haida Gwaii, British Columbia with a group of artists from across Canada on a 14-day kayak journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and ancient Haida village of SGang Gwaay. The arduous kayaking and camping trip through the archipelago inspired a cosmic shift in my life. Here are some pastel studies inspired by the journey.
