Thanks for visiting my website. I update the site regularly,  and include listings for events and workshops.  

Artwork is arranged both by medium as well as by themes. Scroll down each for the various subgroups. For workshops, please see the 'whats new' section or send me an email through the address below. 

My paintings, prints and murals explore themes drawn from the urban as well as natural landscape.  Thematically I have been influenced by my immediate community, most specifically the Downtown Eastside of the city. The shifting dynamics of the street is a collage of images and encounters that are both edgy and full of primal vitality, and I move between the mediums of woodcut, mono-print, mixed media painting and acrylics. Each infuses the other with possibilities, providing springboards for new directions. 

My public murals are both solo and collaborative. I have worked in a broad range of media, including mixed-media works and mosaic, wood, etched aluminum and concrete. I am driven by the engagement that comes with working on site and within the community, using the exciting and unpredictably challenging processes to advance my expression.  Forms of community engagement brings me closer to the artists i work with as well to my surrounding community. It is through these projects that i feel a continuum has developed.
