Self-Storage Facility's Maritime Mural Draws Attention


Canadian self-storage owner Cliff Piercy tapped renowned artist Bill Maximick to produce a single, elaborate painting to cover 1,700 square feet of Driftwood Self Storage in Courtenay, British Columbia. Maximick is known in the community for his West Coast maritime scenes.

The painting, commissioned 18 months ago, stretches 145 feet long and 12 feet high. The forefront of the picture includes an expansive and colorful view of Baynes Sound to Denman Island from the Inland Island Highway, with the Buckley Bay ferry halfway across the water.

Maximick also worked self-storage into the painting, adding four open storage doors and themed unit contents.

Piercy, whose family has ties to Denman Island, was pleased with the painting, and has received numerous compliments.
