Feel free to check through it and take a tour of the artwork I am proud to have created over the years.
Here you will find samples of some of the work I have done through the various stages of my life and career. It is a cross-section of work that spans over 30 years and, I believe it is a good representation of my body of work.
I welcome you to check out the artwork I have included here and hope it will do what art is meant to do; inspire, promote emotions and opinions, and provide a bit of entertainment.
This is an acrylic on canvas at 12 inches tall by 48 inches wide. I did it over two weekends and had a great time painting it.
I have decided to add this new section to my website to show some of the beautiful artwork that there is to be found around the city of Calgary, Alberta. I have not gotten out to start on it yet, but will begin contributing to it very soon.
The Calgary Public Arts Program has brought a great deal of beauty and culture to the city. I hope people can take some time to go out and appreciate some of the paintings and sculptures to be found in Calgary.

I like to open eyes and evoke emotions with my work. Sometimes people will like it and sometimes they won't. Either way is okay with me. I think that is what art - true art - is all about. It can make you think of past experiences, make you smile, shake your head and wonder why the artist even created it or even make you angry. But it makes you feel something.
For me, art is a kind of entertainment that I feel addicted to. I can look at a tree or an old car and see it as if it were painted in watercolours or acrylics or even as a pencil sketch. Then I feel that I want to try to do it that way. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I give up half way through a painting. Other times I will try again and again until I feel that I get it right.
My choice of subject matter, medium and style are very personal and work for me like little science experiments. If I get the recipe just right, the work is a success. There are even times when an unexpected mistake teaches me something new and beautiful.
Please look through my site and let me know if it makes you feel anything.I am always happy to hear different opinions and see if it caused you to feel any emotions.
