Linda Heslop – Is it real or is it…?
A Question of Balance
Linda Heslop lives in Victoria on Vancouver Island. But her art graces the walls of collectors around the globe. Her deep connection with this place is unmistakeable…an indelible imprint that informs nearly everything she does. “I am simply in love with Vancouver Island”, she says.

Perhaps the most striking aspect of Ms. Heslop’s work is it’s realistic detail. Upon first glance one assumes a photograph…many are taken aback to find that, no, it’s a water-colour.
When we set out to look for artwork that could introduce our guests at UltimateBnB to the beauty of this island the decision was an easy one to make. We chose two prints: ‘Arrival’ and ‘After the Storm’. Each one personifies the ‘Life Near Ocean’ experience that island living entails.
