“Guardians” Oil on Canvas 24” x 36”. Mountains in BC are like guardians of the landscape. Calmly quietly presiding over the beauty that we have. They are a calming influence for me. The Bella Coola Valley was my inspiration. I felt I could breathe there, the tightness in my chest just relaxed. I find the #cariboo has that effect on me. In my work I strive to share that feeling. Visit us @themessyowl.inn and you can see this piece and maybe purchase?

Just thought I would post a selfie that I am ok with being out in cyberspace. Despite COVID, 2021 hasn't been a bad year for me. It started out with big plans hatched during lockdown with my daughter Audrey: The Messy Owl Inn & Cafe. We didn't have a ton of money to invest. All the junk collected from back alleys, thrift stores & even a couple of dumpsters became decor. We wanted to be ecologically responsible any way we could conceive. Many changes took place: We moved from our rental in Burnaby (expensive & too crowded) so we could purchase something we could actually afford (moving rentals every three years gets old really fast). My dream has always been to live in a rural setting. Lots of trees, fewer people. In the last few years I was finally able to work on my mental health with really good professionals (thank you Burnaby Mental Health). I no longer feel that survival requires me to be all things to all people. I am finally able to be myself & be ok with that. Before this, I really didn’t know who I was. A lot more is known about PTSD than when I was younger. The new treatments do work, even though I was sceptical. Do the work, you are worth it. As I became more comfortable with myself, my art matured & is now a reflection of me & the world I live in. That quiet peaceful moment in nature, heavily influenced by the art in video games. Constantly simplifying the form & colours. There is a yearning for the peace that nature gives us in my work; I think many people have the same desire. I want to share the wonder & the peace I get from the landscape with others. I have been so blessed with all the support I have received from friends & clients. I am grateful for my family (for putting up with me & my excess baggage); it hasn’t been an easy go for them either. I love being an artist & an innkeeper. I have been so happy, that I lost 40 Lbs without noticing. When I was nine I wanted to be an artist, when I was 12 I wanted to have a Cafe or an Inn. Dream big! Going forward I will continue to paint, cook & bake for our business. Macaron flavours will change monthly & cake doughnuts are coming! #canadianartist #CanadianArt #likelybc #cariboolife #beautifulbc #dutchartist #landscapeartist #femaleartist #over60woman

There is something incredibly creative about cooking and baking. Finding balance in flavour and colour. Composing a landscape on a plate so that the first glance at what’s on offer makes you want to dig in right away. It’s been so satisfying to find the sweet spot in the layers of flavour and texture. I love combining raspberry (my fav) and dark chocolate. It’s sexy. Ad some lightly flavoured cream cheese filling just to tart it up - and it’s just romantic. Chocolate raspberry pie - Valentine’s Day to share or to show some self love. @themessyowl.inn #bakinglove #bakingfromscratch #likelybc #valentinesdaytreats

My mother experienced first hand WWII as child during her early teen years. We grew up witnessing her PTSD. She experienced bombings and hunger, her father dying of starvation. It was a lot. Her brother was sent as a young man to German work camps. The most poignant memory was of the taking of the Jewish families. Children she had played with. Her Dutch was always peppered with Jiddisch. She never saw them again. One family hid a family but they were found. As retribution the German soldiers lined up the boys in her street and shot them. We should never forget how horrible war is, so many victims, so much sorrow and trauma. Genocide should not be allowed to happen and yet it still does. Discrimation of anyone is deplorable. If you have ever been to a concentration camp you will know just how much sorrow still seeps into your feet while you stand there. We are now also witness to the intense brutalities that were forced upon our indigenous people and we need to move to reconciliation and healing so that as a country we will be stronger, better and united. Sorry about my soap box speech but as a Dutch woman it is near to my heart. #remembrance #reconcilliation #holocaustremembranceday #neverforgetww2

Feeling a little pink. The sunrise was so lovely this morning I thought this would be a nice place to start. On the couch bathed in early morning light. This piece is just that: a new neighbourhood full of new beginnings in the early morning light. “Fragment of the Whole” 30” x 30” Oil on canvas. #PNW #landscapeart #imaginationart #idealismart #beautifulbc🇨🇦 #canadianartist🇨🇦 #dutchartist @ The Messy Owl Inn & Cafe

“The Guardians” 24” x 36” oil on canvas. This painting is based on the Bella Coola Valley. The mountains surround the valley in such a way that they stand as silent guardians for the valley. A beautiful peaceful place. The sunlight is such a gift when it touches the valley, peaking through the mountains.

Sundown on the road to Likely. I thought it would be kind of scary driving this road in the dark, being used to ultra-lit roads in the lower mainland, but it’s very calming. You see the occasional moose, their eyes red from the headlights, but it’s just so beautiful to see their outline against the dusky sky. The Cariboo is amazing. #likelybc #cariboochilcotin #caribooliving #landscapes #adventuretravel
