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.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
