in 1985 with a major in Printmaking and a minor in Drawing. He moved to B. C. where he lived in
Kitwanga for 11 years and fell in love with super-natural British Columbia’s beautiful scenery and
landscape. For many years he has enjoyed living in Kelowna.

I mostly like to work with conceptual ideas and symbolism. Some of my influences are
Emily Carr, Albert Durer, M. C. Escher. Nature has had a profound influence on my art work. I
believe that all nature is created by design, therefore there has to be a Designer.
His interests are family, nature, art, photography, computer graphics, sculpture, carving, drawing and fishing.
