Isthmus 36×48 inches oil on canvas, 2022
Testimonial: “My husband and I have been looking for a very long time for a statement piece of art that would would be peaceful yet vibrant. My husband really wanted a realistic approach to the painting, whereas I wanted to capture some abstract elements as well. Amelia found the perfect balance and we could not be happier with our beautiful painting! She was incredibly patient as we iterated on the piece and was open to our suggestions and questions throughout the process. We love and enjoy the work more and more each day and feel very fortunate to own a piece by this very talented artist. “Isthmus” — Rashmi and Paul, September 2022
Rip Point 24×72 inches oil on canvas, 2021
This painting was inspired by boating and windsurfing around the Gulf Islands. The title and composition hint at the fierce power of our coastal waterways, tides, and rip currents. The precise colour palette was intended to balance the dark shadows of the Lawren Harris painting and the copper metallics in the MELT pendant by Tom Dixon. The water reflections mimic the psychedelic distortions of the molten glass. It has been added to a notable art collection in an architect designed home overlooking the Burrard inlet.
Testimonial: “From the onset of our commission “Rip Point” Amelia was amazing to work with. She is incredibly thorough and spent time with us in our space so she could make an amazing piece of art that was just right for us. I had very specific requests for colours and feel and she delivered. We absolutely love our piece and see something new in the painting everyday.” Alexandra & John, Feb 2022

The colours representing summertime on the west coast—dry grass and Arbutus complemented by the cool tones of the ocean. A painting that reflects this client’s maritime history and appreciation for these precious waters. It found its place under a skylight in their stunning home.

Tempo 36×48 inches, oil on canvas, 2020
Testimonial: “Amelia is a master at capturing the simple beauty of water. “Tempo” captures the reflection of the Granville Island water taxis in the ocean. Growing up near the water has created a fascination with how water constantly changes with the light, movement, and reflection. I also find it has an amazing calming effect.” — Chantal, August 2021
