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.
