Over the years, I have juried into events in, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Salt Lake, Fort Worth, Chicago and St Louis, among others.

Additionally, I was a previous official event and poster artist for the Skagit Tulip Festival (the first Canadian to do so).


Contemporary Landscape Drawing with vivid Oil Pastels on panel or paper. I begin with a black surface and, then apply gold metallic leaf as landscape elements, prior to completing the work with oil pastel. My work has been described as 'Van Gogh meets Kandinsky at Klimt's house for dinner' - Ha!
