Enjoy browsing through my original artwork. My enthusiasm shows through my paintings and I am forever striving to improve as I go. Being born and raised on the West Coast of BC, I have always been very in-tune with nature. My love of the West Coast....the ocean, mountains, lakes, skies, sealife, birds, animals and flowers are all an inherent part my make-up and a day never goes by that I am not encapsulated with the beauty surrounding me. Which of course, leads me to painting a good majority of my time now that I am retired from the regular workforce.
Please check out my art by clicking on the tabs in the left hand column of this page. Here you will find an ongoing assortment of my original paintings beginning with the most current. All paintings are originals not prints. Conmmissions are also always welcome.
