Loving the Job 


I was born and raised in Victoria, left for 20 years to live on the mainland and Salt Spring Island, and have been back in my home city since 1990.Vonnie Simpkin

After a 40-year career in nursing, I retired to pursue my dormant desire to paint; drawing from life, memories, imagination, and what I can capture with my camera.

There is much to keep one learning and exploring: technique variations in watercolour and other media and the challenge of interesting faces, fascination creatures, and stunning West Coast scenery.
