I was born in Edmonton Alberta, when I was 8 years old I moved to northern Alberta to Fort Kent where I built my first treehouse in the bush and first discovered my love of nature.
I was married to the love of my life (Charlene) in the year 1988. We moved to Northern Saskatchewan (to a small town called Big River) in the year 1990. Saskatchewan is where I fell in love with the boreal forest.
I took up the art of painting in 2013 due to a medical crisis which confined me to a chair for quite some time. I use acrylic paints for the majority of my work. I became a member of the Regina Federation of Artists Guild in the year 2017.
I have spent thousands of hours in the bush studying wildlife and fauna. When I paint, it feels as though I am in the bush. I hear the sounds, I smell the fragrances, and I feel the breeze; it is like I am sitting right there. Studying nature brings me closer to my creator.
