In my work, I am interested in caring and nurturing for others. My tiny hand painted landscapes, fitting into a pocket, become portals to other parts of the world. They are created as “medicinal” paintings, offering relief in times of deep distress. Over the years these have been given to people, as a pharmacist fills a prescription.  


Pocket Paintings

How you can be involved:

If you are interested in being a part of the giving process, please contact me. You may arrange to purchase one, or you may sponsor (partially also) one for me to dispense. My art practice involves both exhibiting and giving them. Purchasing artwork and donating through Patreon help me to be able to do both.

Do you have old medicine tins? I would love to use them to help others. My address is: Shelley Vanderbyl 2200 Waveland Road Courtenay, B.C. V9J 1X8 Canada
