SENFT, Douglas Alfred
Vancouver Island artist Douglas Alfred Senft died at his home in Royston on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at the age of 62. Douglas was born in Vancouver on March 28, 1950. Despite being diagnosed with cancer in the spring of 2012, his passion for creating art was so strong that he continued to work in his studio as long as possible before his death. Douglas was a prolific and respected Canadian sculptor. His public art projects grace sites across Western Canada, the United States and Spain. His studio work is in many private and public collections and he exhibited in public and private galleries. Douglas also taught sculpture for the past twelve years at North Island College. He was a dedicated, rigorous and inspiring teacher. Douglas is survived by his partner in love and work, Catherine Lavelle, the mother of his children, Anne Joslin, his daughter Emma Senft, his son Leon Senft and his sisters Jean Cairns (Jim) and Arlene Senft (Bob Fridel). There will be a memorial for Douglas to be held in the spring of 2013.
