Emily Carr was a truly original woman. She was a fearless traveller, and a clear and amusing teller of the story of her life, which was a long and fruitful one. An artist, she struggled to make her living, and find her 'voice' at a time when women were expected to conform. She kept notes all her life, and published her first book in her seventies - so there's hope for all of us!! This is the house her father had built, in which she was born. It is an elegant Victorian building, set in a lovely garden, and you will be given a warm welcome. I knew little about Emily when I visited her home last September. but was inspired to read her writing, and to visit the Art Gallery to see her works, by my trip to her house. It's situated in a lovely residential area, only a short walk from the centre of town - do try to visit -like me, you may find it very special.
