Artists of Gambier Island

G.K. Ranu-Johnson (Sharn)

I was born on the west coast of

Canada and growing up, I fell in

love with the work of Emily Carr.

I relate to her love of our natural

west coast landscapes.


After a hiatus working full time in

the community service field as an

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

officer and growing a family,

I rediscovered my love of painting

after buying a home on the

Sunshine Coast's Gambier Island, with my husband Bill and our four children.


The land, water and community inspire me and my art.
