Gwen Ruckle’s Art

One of my distant relatives, the late Gwen Ruckle of Saltspring Island, had quite a knack for art. I’ve tried to find what I can find of her art. My parents own one of her paintings, and the vast majority are in private collections, many with family and friends. Once in a while, they come up for sale or auction. I’d like to track down what I can and hopefully own a few of her original paintings one day…
