I have a piece of art in the upcoming Backyard Biodiversity Exhibit at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC (that’s a lot of Bs).
The exhibition features books and illustrations by CWILL BC writers and illustrators. My piece is the cover comp for my very first picture book, A Pod of Orcas. All the illustrations in that book were referenced from the shoreline around my home in Vancouver, and the author drew her inspiration from the shoreline around her home on Vancouver Island – so I think that qualifies as our backyards.
The opening event takes place on September 27th, from 12:00-3pm.
There will be readings and art activities.
There is a complete daily program list for the museum, here.
