Margot is widely known for her beautiful and detailed enamels. This month, her work has a special focus, and is on display in our boutique window.

Says Margot: “I have always said that if I can draw it, I can enamel it. However, the wolf known as Takaya who lived a solitary life on the Discovery Islands off the BC coast, was a new challenge for me. Takaya had been documented over the course of 7 years by photographer Cheryl Alexander. The photographs she took showed a handsome grey wolf with a curiously inquisitive gaze.

I was shocked to hear he was shot by a hunter in late March, but the yellow ear tag proved his identity. He had been relocated to the Port Renfrew area, because of his habit to swim over to populous Vancouver Island.

At a time when everyone in BC was under orders to self isolate, here was this wolf, a veritable isolationist, doing what was natural to him. Conservation Officers will give his remains to the local First Nations. They will honour him.”
