From 2013 to the present, a main project has been the Woodwynn Peace Garden at Woodwynn Farms, a therapeutic community for the homeless. The Peace Garden includes a labyrinth with herbs, fruits and vegetables incorporated.

I am currently featured at Art Works Gallery in Vancouver as well as Sooke Harbour House and my wife Elizabeth has her glass-on-glass mosaics there too.

and I also have work available at Merridale Cider and the Avens Gallery in Canmore Alberta.

WOODWYNN PEACE GARDEN.  Art Project Designed by Deryk Houston in co operation with Woodwynn Farms.

The site includes several major sculptures designed by Deryk Houston and his son Samuel Houston as well as American artist David Kocka.

Deryk’s wife, Elizabeth Wellburn, also played a big part in the work. One of her glass mosaics is already on site and she will be contributing a major glass and stainless steel sculpture to the site in 2016.

500 edible sage plants and 250 lavender plants were planted in the spring of 2015.
