“I sincerely enjoy communicating through my art. Colours and brush strokes are my true language. Over the many years of being an artist, I have become very familiar with a variety of drawing and painting media and styles – pen, watercolour, oil, acrylic and even digital painting on my computer. It doesn’t really matter what medium I use, my goal is to tell stories, and I pick the medium that I feel works best with the story I am telling. Living in beautiful British Columbia, and with my love of travelling, I will never stop until all my stories are told.”
