Toni Onley

Toni Onley, the famed flying artist of BC, died on February 29, 2004 when his plane crashed into the Fraser River near Maple Ridge, east of Vancouver. At the age of 75, he had achieved international recognition mostly for his moody watercolours of remote regions of BC that he was able to access with his own plane. He died doing what he loved the most. Another major loss in BC's art community in recent years.
