Carol Borrett paints in both watercolours and acrylics out of her home studio in Maple Bay on Vancouver Island. Much of the inspiration for her pictures comes from time she spends traveling Vancouver Island and throughout the Gulf Islands. Her realistic paintings reveal her fascination with water, boats and reflections. They capture the many varied moods of the coastal area and way of life.
The Cowichan Valley Regional District is a broad geographic region stretching from the Malahat to North Oyster and from the Cowichan Lake to Thetis Island.
