VICTORIA COLLEGE OF ART
Ruth Bowman enrolled in the Victoria College of Art in the fall of 2013. After instruction in Drawing, Design, Painting, and Illustration she became a juried member of the Island Illustrators Society. This illustration of Caddy is currently displayed at the Society’s Vision of Victoria Art Show at St Ann’s Academy, 835 Humboldt St., Victoria, BC.
Cadborosaurus willsi or Caddy, is a sea serpent seen by many people in various coastal locations. Although the existence of this creature has not been proven, sightings near Cadboro Bay have given the legend its name.
The instruction and support provided by all the instructors I have had the pleasure to work with has been a contributing factor in the successes I am beginning to experience as I pursue a career as an illustrator and designer.

You will explore the breadth and range of Carr’s career from her earliest sketches and still life paintings to the finished canvases of her mature years. We will also focus on the First Nations’ cultures of the Northwest Coast with a particular interest on the precise areas where Carr sketched and painted. Some of the themes include Emily Carr’s documenting First Nations’ cultures, her contact and exchanges with First Nations’ people and the inspiration and profound effect Northwest Coast art had on Emily Carr throughout her life.”
