Just as I take from the earth so must I give back. To take earth, give it personal expression, smooth it with a stone, give it to the fire by embedding the clay into the dust of trees and making it vulnerable to the natural elements, completes a cycle in which I am proud to play a part.

-Laura Wee Lay Laq

My early working life was spent in heavy industry, working as a deckhand and longshoreman. The labour was intense, but the money and the time off where instrumental in helping me develop my painting. After years as an art instructor, I have made a full-time commitment to my art, especially with the Vancouver Biennale installation of Trans Am Totem.

-Marcus Bowcott
