Victoria newcomer Sierra Choquette, the talent behind Faery Essences, has an awful lot of artistic magic! Captured here in a piece she created when first moving to BC, Sierra has hit the ground running in the Sunset community contributing art, decor, dance performance, silent auction donations and now – as part of the Sunset Room crew! For those who know her, her gifts to the community have been obvious, and for those who don’t – you’ll want to make her acquaintance soon as possible!

In the short time she has been here I have seen her bring MUCH of this creative magic to bear in her participation in our culture, so it is with gratitude that we share this art piece with you!
She has written up the following about the piece:
Approx 18 Hours | Acrylic & Mixed Medium (Leaves, Ink)
Inspired by the amazing fall colors that I witnessed upon moving to Victoria from Calgary. This was the only way I could do it justice.
“It was almost that time of year again.
To go down the red dirt road,
visiting family and friends.
You could never help but wonder,
what colors would this fall provide?
The Maples, red and yellow hues.
Oaks, deep browns amongst sky blues.
Countless other trees and leaves beyond name,
The beautiful ever-changeing canvas of nature,
a wonderful treat every year.
Sometimes when we traveled down that road,
I wished the end would never appear. ”
