We offer a warm welcome to...

 ...artist Esther Sample as she joins our family of artists! 



A commercial fisher-person for many years, Esther traveled all over the coast of BC, hiding from storms in little hidden coves, seeing places long forgotten. This is when she became passionate about the natural coastline and the people who live on it.

Today Esther can be found in her home studio in the Comox Valley passionately painting the west coast as she sees it. Being mainly self taught, she feels the freedom of not knowing the “rules” and just painting as her heart guides her.

Among many other pieces by Esther, "Graceful Diver" print on canvas has just arrived in the Market for your artful perusal.

We're expecting warm weather this weekend...

 ...on the shores of the Salish Sea! 


These tabletop rock mats by Happy Pebble Rock Mats are PERFECT for dining alfresco! 

(okay maybe under a patio heater in April...)

To meet artist Karen Anema, is to feel the power and emotion that emits from her as explains each of her pieces and what inspired her to create them.

Both are original acrylic on canvas.

Do you still have your mum or grandma's the jar of buttons?

Many people tell us about their wonderful childhood memories sitting cross legged on the floor looking at the buttons for hours on end. While you and I are reminiscing (about the buttons and sitting cross legged) the folks from Mile Zero are busy making button bracelets out of them.
What? You haven't tried wearing one of these little gems? They are SERIOUSLY fun and surprisingly work with just about any occasion!

Brian is one of the bright lights of Bowser. He is always looking out for others, always thinking of what others need. Today, we celebrate Brian, and all that he does for this little community on the shores of the Salish Sea.

Congratulations and Happy 10th Anniversary to Lighthouse Feed and Garden and to Bowser's own Mr. Brian Boyes, a.k.a the "Prince of Bowsaire!" 

Love from, The Salish Sea Sisters
Joanne, Lauri, Sharon and Simone
