Corinne Flaws, moved from Winnipeg to the Isle of the Arts (Gabriola Island) in 2020. She retired from her career in information Systems Program / Project Management in 2017 to direct her full attention to her photography and art. Corinne has always had a passion for nature and capturing its beauty. It inspires her to share what she sees, through her photographs and her art.

She enjoys capturing images with her camera to use as inspiration for her paintings. This beauty is at risk. Human activity in the name of progress is depleting the earth’s resources and heating up the planet. Housing development is taking away habitat from animals, causing them to interact more with humans often resulting in their demise. The ice fields are melting causing rise in sea levels which is causing flooding. Temperatures are rising causing more and more fires. The artworks in this show is imagining what a future might be like if this continues at the pace it is currently occurring.
