Inspired by our beautiful natural surroundings, British Columbia is the perfect home for thousands of artists, writers, sculptors and painters, who produce handmade products, unique house hold goods, art on canvas and some of the finest works in glass, fabric, paper, wood and metals. A collage of their work and experience is shared here in photography on our site. To visit their studios, learn about tours and locate where you can find these BC gifts to pick up during your visit.
