Born and raised in Kamloops, I'm an author and publishing industry mainstay. "How to Raise a Billionaire Genius" is a satirical parenting book published by Ulysses press in Berkeley, California. I followed up that book with two children's books titled, "Shoe Fly" and "Arm Tale." The next children's book will be out in the Fall, it's titled "Stand Out" and features the powerful life story of local hockey hero, Ajay Baines.
Shannon Dana, an acrylic painter from Birch Island, British Columbia, is in pursuit of the "Magic of Light." Shannon strives to capture light onto canvas, making it the subject of her paintings. Her playful use of colour and strong value contrasts are recognizable across her work. Although Shannon loves spending time in her home studio, she feels that her true calling is plein air painting. Luckily, for a landscape painter living within such close proximity to Wells Gray Provincial Park, there is no shortage of inspiration for new paintings.
