Since moving to Victoria I have  been captivated by the tugboat life of the Inner harbour. I feel a deep need to record what is left of our rapidly changing waterfront and disappearing lifestyles. When I first came across a working tug I was enthralled by the colour, strength, movement of these boats and the men that work on them. I feel called to document these images before they are lost forever.

    Janet, Sat. night and it’s 11:30 p.m. and the barge has been completely levelled and put back to it’s mooring. It’s been 4 hours, the tug folks are going to get to go home tonight. the big tug is still on the site, the barge is not exactly where it was, a bit further forward, and going nowhere tonight.
    We like your paintings a lot! It was Great to meet you and we’ll look for your post of the event.
