Tahirih Goffic, Hagensborg, B.C. Bella Coola Valley Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I am a painter, photographer, writer, and mother of 2 adorable children. I live on the glorious West Coast of British Columbia in an isolated valley, called the Bella Coola Valley, surrounded by magnificent mountains, and abundant wildlife. The Grizzlies feast on my apple tree, and I can hear the call of the Bald eagle when I open my front door. I can't think of a more beautiful place on earth in which to paint and raise my family.
