Where are the artists from?
Most artists are local to Vancouver Island and of those, 90% are from the Cowichan Valley. We also have a few from the Gulf Islands and the lower mainland.
How do you find the artists?
Initially I started with a dozen artists from an arts collective in the valley that closed in 2018. I searched out art and artists that I was drawn to and connected with them. Now I'm happy to say that artists are finding me.
I'm an artist and would love to have my work at Three Trees. What's the process?
Three Trees is a curated artisan shop so I'm looking for a particular style of work. Please contact me to see if we're the right fit for each other. Since my space is limited, I want to properly promote the work that is here and having too many items can be overwhelming for shoppers. I may at times have a wait list for prospective artisans.
