‘Our Gift’

Chris Paul and Krista Stogryn 



The Victoria Health Co-operative and Creating Community Wellness Society were given an invaluable donation in December 2017 in the form of a custom designed artwork, titled ‘Our Gift’, by artist, Chris Paul. He and partner, Dr Krista Stogryn, have given a limited number of signed prints which are available as gifts to our donors who have contributed over $100 in a pledge to the Creating Community Wellness Society. We invite and encourage you to donate in support of our wellness initiatives and growing community. Please email wellnesscharity@gmail.com to request a print.

About the Artists

Chris Paul is an internationally recognized Coast Salish artist, W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip) First Nation, and Krista Stogryn is a family physician who has spent her career living and learning in First Nations communities on the West Coast and cared for patients of the Co-op Health Centre for several years. Together they created a beautiful and meaningful design of a person, wrapped in a blanket representing the fabric of the co-op community, surrounded and supported by the Co-op.

In their words: ‘Our Gift’ is our humble offering, to acknowledge the Victoria Health Co-operative for all its hard work in supporting the health centre and its devoted team of physicians and staff in the care of our patients.
