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.

The most recent event was the HerringFest Artshow put on by Conservancy Hornby Island in March 2019. I am happy to report that two of my sea lion paintings were sold.
In 2018 I participated and sold a large painting at UBC in Vancouver along with many other artists to fundraise for "HornbyTimes". Proceeds went towards our new Art Centre that has been in the works for quite a number of years. It is anticipated that ground-breaking for the new building will take place in the Fall of 2019.
Check out some other fund-raising projects that I have participated in with both paintings and 3-D projects over the years at:
