Area resident, Nancy Walkey, has a love for the outdoors and photography.  As a result, Nancy has found that by joining these two loves together, she creates memorable photographs for all to enjoy.

“My husband Erwin and I love to garden, we are always looking for different species and colours of flowers to plant.  I am always impatient for them to bloom so I can get out my camera and snap a few hundred pictures.

“I am still learning the ins and outs of my camera and trying different settings, and am amazed at some of the results I get.  I start to think that it’s my “talents” but then I realize it’s just the beauty of nature that I managed to capture.

“My love of photography started at a young age.  Every summer our family would set out on holidays and explore our beautiful province.

“I started with the usual little point and shoot cameras, gradually getting better ones as I  grew, and encouraged by the positive comments I would receive.

“I grew to appreciate the beauty in our wildlife and nature around us.

“Whenever I go for a drive, whether it’s just to Kamloops, Knouff Lake, or to the coast to visit family, I always have my camera sitting beside me ready to take that “perfect” picture.”

Nancy will be at the Armour Mountain Art Gallery on Nov. 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. for a “meet and greet” with the community, and is the gallery’s feature artist for the month of November.
