When not painting, I am a wilderness volunteer, mainly protecting our coastal environment. I hold a B.A. (Architecture) degree from Manchester University (UK).
I also farmed in New Brunswick and, early in life, was a leading scout for the army in the Malayan jungle.
My wife and I have lived in West Vancouver for the past 27 years and have family both in BC and Seattle.
My paintings are shown at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island, where I received second prize in the Federation of Canadian Artists’ 2011 Abstract Show. The Federation also gave me two Awards of Excellence for pastel paintings. My painting “Winter Sunrise” was included in the 2016 “Painting on the Edge” international show.
My show “Migrations” was featured at the Silk Purse Gallery, West Vancouver in 2015.
My work is mostly abstracts or semi-abstracts with landscape, building or life-form subjects.
