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.
Being born and raised in Calgary, one can't help by being affected by the Calgary Stampede. It is Calgary's premiere event every year in July and it draws people from all corners of the world and features daily rodeos and chuckwagon races. That is the inspiration behind this picture of a Bronc Rider.
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.
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.

You strike a match in the dark. It evokes a sense of warmth, security, light, maybe even joy. It can make you feel a sense of safety and happiness. It can relieve you of a feeling of isolation and fear. It can change your visible environment. Somehow it can make it better and more homey.
But wait -
What if you strike that same match on a dark battlefield? It can promote a sense of fear, anger, danger and even betrayal of those around you.
It can certainly change our environment for the worse, bring the scorn or others around you and bring the wrath of both your friends and enemies. That little match can light a campfire or a forest fire. It is all a matter of perspective.
In my work, I try to produce a sense of awe, acceptance, joy or pleasure. It’s alright if it brings something else, though.
I think that is what art is all about. It can start a conversation and let us view something new that hopefully expands our world even a little bit. You can accept and like it or step back and voice your disapproval.
So, put on your Art Appreciation/Critic hat and watch as I light my match.
