Dorset Norwich-Young is an honours graduate of Vancouver’s Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She makes her home on Pender Island where her love of nature and the outdoors has been elevated to new heights. She has signature status with the Federation of Canadian Artists and has strong ties to the Victoria and Pender Island art communities. She painted first in oils, then watercolours, and now in acrylics. Her passion for the beauty and wildness of the BC coast shows in her painting, and she presently favours large-format landscapes and seascapes as well as florals, boats, and animals.
Dorset participated in two previous very successful art-related campaigns: the Carmanah Valley and Tsitika Robson Bight. The past two summers have led her to explore BC’s northern coast on what have become life-altering trips. She is strongly committed to making Canada’s raincoast campaign as successful as her previous ones.
Become a Raincoaster
Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.
For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
