I was born and raised in Vancouver.  Upon graduating from Vancouver Tech High School, I enrolled at Vancouver Art School for a four year course.  The school is now known as Emily Carr.  This course gave me the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with many artists.

Instructors at the school included Don Jarvis, Jack Shadbolt, Takoe Tanabe, Roy Kiyooka, Peter Aspell, Ron Stonier and Orville Fisher.

To create my artwork I look for shapes, lines, color and composition.  The work in this show reaches some of my goals.  There is always something to search for while attempting an art piece.  Searching is challenging and satisfying.
