Now and then – when the wanderlust kicks in – we seek out creators from other parts of the world. We are delighted to have won a W3 award for writing and Webby Award Honoree status.

Founder: Elizabeth Newton
As someone who was raised in an arts-filled home in Vancouver, I love poking about the nooks and crannies, looking for new creative voices and learning more about those who have already made their mark.

My own most serious creative outlets are in writing: various magazines, newspapers, websites and in music: ARCT in piano performance and a youth-worn violin that my family dearly hopes I keep locked in the closet.

As a child, I took it upon myself to solve non-existent neighbourhood mysteries. Emboldened by Miss Marple and equipped with a Nancy Drew spy kit, I hunted down the owners of lost keys and wise cats. Now –  after completing the Professional Private Investigation Training Course for BC –  I am working on the first book in a murder mystery series. I am also a Registered Psychologist with a Ph.D from Stanford University.

Most important always has been time with my family – parents, husband, daughter, Labradoodle in age order  – who continue to inspire me with their wildly diverse creative pursuits.
