The late Jack Shadbolt, the renowned BC painter, once called Hornby Island home and to this day the island boasts a sky high per-capita population of creatives.
Artists, musicians, and writers find that the island's peace, isolation, and natural beauty fire up their imaginations and productivity. Not surprisingly, many visitors arrive here with their own sketchbooks, journals, guitars, laptops, and other creative tools.
About 50 home studios are listed in the annual map guide produced by the Hornby Island Arts Council (available at brochure racks around the island). All are open by appointment for most, if not all of the year. Among the artists maintaining regularly scheduled studio hours in the summer are painters Roberta Pyx Sutherland, and Caroline James, toymaker Christiane Brown, and fibre artist Veronica Lynn Graham.
