Sandra Dolph is best known on Galiano Island as a potter with an international reputation. Surface decoration of form has always been a large part of her work. But in the last few years decoration of the flat surface has become a major area of exploration. She uses the rich color of ceramic underglazes, terra sigillatas, and her signature "lichen glaze" to render impressions of the westcoast coastline: the waves and sea, forests and sky. She incises line and texture with found natural objects, sometimes imbedding beach stone or sand into the clay. As well, she uses shells, bark, plants and other interesting prizes that come home with her from her long daily walks along the shores and in the forests of Galiano Island. The resultant two-dimensional but softly undulant works are vibrant, and flushed with warm earthy tones that are indicative of her love of the environment in which she lives.

Kenna's treatment of light, vivid use of colour and richly textured works bring the eco-systems she renders to life and beckons us to look beyond the surface and see the minute details in our midst.

Do not explain music
do not explain dreams
the elusive penetrates everything
you must know that everything rhymes
My paintings draw on the wild, myths, forests, moonlight, creatures and dreams.........
