Alane Lalonde has been a Saltspring Island resident for 44 years, living in British Columbia, Canada and has travelled extensively throughout Europe and the Far East. Her passion for photography began when she became an avid gardener.

Travelling throughout Britain gave her the love of shooting architecture.

Over the years, she has participated in numerous photographic workshops and has successfully maintained her creativity through her art of seeing.

Her work has been shown at the Photosynthesis Photography show at Artspring for the past 19 years and the Sooke fine arts show.

For the past 26 years she has been exploring Mexico, mesmerized with its colorful culture and warm hearted people.

This year my work is very varied. I continue to use my travels as my inspiration.

This year once again, I shoot what I love.
