About the Artist

​Moyna has lived on the North Coast of British Columbia most of her life. Originally a native of New Brunswick, Moyna moved to the Pacific Coast with her family at the tender age of 6 months. Moyna started in Victoria and from there moved to Butedale, an old fishing cannery. It was there that Moyna’s love of the outdoors began. After another stop on Aristazabal Island in a logging camp, Moyna finally ended up in Prince Rupert at the age of ten. It was here that Moyna’s love of the natural beauty surrounding her grew and flourished.

Moyna has always collected items found on the beaches and in the forests of the Northwest. These natural treasures and the environment itself have provided the inspirations for Moyna’s artistic creations.

Moyna’s photography captures the beauty and tranquility of B.C.’s North Coast. Whether it’s a scene from the temperate rainforest or a portrait of local wildlife, Moyna’s photographs evoke a sence of wonder and connection to nature.

When she is not behind the camera, you can find Moyna strolling a beach or hiking a forest trail with her family and dog taking in the sights and sounds of this special place she calls home. Her artwork is meant to transport the viewers back to the North Coast, providing a reminder of its timeless appeal and ability to restore the spirit. Through her photographs and nature inspired pieces, Moyna aims to share the magic of this place she loves so much.
