CONTACT INFO

“I entered the Vancouver School of Art in 1969 to pursue my continuing photography work. Here I was introduced to sculpture and found the world of 3D. BCIT led to a career in the building environment and working with major architectural firms in Vancouver. Retiring from architecture in 2004, I returned to my first love, the 2D world of Photographic Arts. I continue to take courses at Emily Carr University of Art & Design. Recently, I returned from Holland on a painting courses studying the old masters.”

Photomontage
I use digital images to create photomontages that capture images to inform and entertain. The composition, colour and content of the individual photos become the components of the montage. I obtain original images on location or in the studio. The commitment is in Photoshopping – spending time masking, modifying, merging and mixing filtered images together, sometimes one pixel at a time. The risk is in the final work, meeting my demands and intentions. Does it inform, inspire and draw the viewer in?
