Creatures of the Sun

Andrew Talbot grew up exploring and photographing the far corners of the island from an early age. Inspired by years of surf trips, hikes and kayaking along the west coast, his canvases offer a glimpse into the sacred places that connect us with nature. Each painting starts with an image and a vision and ends telling a story and capturing a feeling. A product of the thriving environment and culture that is Vancouver Island!

“Living in Victoria for a number of years allowed for a lot of cold winter surf trips around the southern west coast. It was these hidden places along the Salish Sea that really burned in my mind. The vibrant colours at dusk and dawn, where ocean storms meet towering forests. Where every object is sculpted, twisted and shaped by rain, wind and waves. Everything connecting, pulsing, releasing and growing. It’s these places that really speak to me, inspire me and shape my life.”

Andrew Talbot is currently based in Comox, B.C. for the warmer months, where he works as a Forest Tech along the coast. He spends his winters in Nelson B.C.
