I was born and raised in the Vancouver area, graduating from the University of British Columbia in 1970. I entered an environmental design program at the Art Center, College of Design and graduated with honours in 1979. I returned to Vancouver and established a freelance practice in watercolour painting, joining the Federation of Canadian Artists where I won the first place Shell Canada award in the spring show of 1980. I was subsequently approached by Canadian Gallery Prints which printed and distributed prints and cards of my painted images Canada wide for decades.
Basically self-taught, I received my first camera at the age of seven and never looked back. I am an avid naturalist and traveller who loves to document life's experiences in photography and painting.
I never considered myself as ever becoming a writer, but was inspired a few years ago by a local photographer to document my extensive travels and nature encounters throughout my beautiful province. The result is my book entitled 'British Columbia ~ Graced by Natures's Pallette' which is outlined in one of my blogs in my 'news', which is found in my 'info' icon.

I am an avid naturalist and traveller who loves to document life's experiences in photography and painting. I was born in Vancouver and graduated with honours from the Art Center, College of Design in Pasadena, California. I freelance in photography and painting and teach both through community centres, private clubs, senior centres at several communities in the lower mainland of Vancouver.
I currently live in the Vancouver area and travel as much as I can to experience what nature has to offer. I have worked on cruise ships in the past and periodically still take groups of photographers, watercolourists (and adventure seekers in general) on cruises to Alaska (see my blog by clicking on the 'Info' icon).
My photography documents my travels within Canada and the United States, but also to Europe, the Caribbean and central America.
I have completed a book titled 'British Columbia ~ Graced by Nature's Pallette' and details can be found in my blog as well.
