Preparing to Dive

Mixed Media  30 x 30


“There are those times that you step up to a challenge in life. Sometimes they come upon you unexpectedly. You stand at the edge and get quiet. You take a breath. You look out, down, then in and settle into your feet. The view nearly takes your breath away and the anticipation propels you forward. The large expanse awaits you. You’re Preparing To Dive. And it’s fun to do. Especially when you’re jumping in with another!”

– Patty Ripley

Medium Width Timorphic Neckpiece Worn Knotted

Medium Width Timorphic Neckpiece

Welded, pure titanium rings with sterling silver clasp & rings


“The Timorphic Collection explores woven forms and the various ways in which such forms change shape when worn upon the human body. This neckpiece marries space-age resistance welding and machining with the age-old art of weaving maille to create a flexible tubular form that can be worn long, short, knotted, folded, or twisted to suit the mood and attire of its wearer.” – Anne Kelly


Rob Elphinstone Westcoast Seastack 30x40 The Avenue Gallery Canadian contemporary art Victoria BC

Westcoast Seastack

Oil on canvas  30 x 40


“Along the north coast of Vancouver Island is the Cape Scott hiking trail that takes you to a lighthouse at the very tip of the island overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Just before you arrive there lie several sea stacks that can be seen with a little effort. This painting was inspired by one of them.”

– Rob Elphinstone
