I am excited to announce my brand new fine art website!

Throughout my illustration career I have always kept painting, and finally found the time to set up an online gallery with original art and prints available for purchase. Check it out.

I just completed a book cover entitled "SEYA, The Woman by the Sea. The author is Divya Tombran.

I was honoured to be a juror in the Artists Association of Canada 2020 Canada International Art Competition.

I recently designed a $100 silver coin for the royal Canadian Mint. The coin commemorates the Canadian participation in the liberation of the Netherlands.

I designed 7 hockey coins for The Rroyal Canadian Min t- theme of learning to play.

Have a look at my commissions page. There is a wide variety of styles. I love the challenge!

I illustrated 3 books for Inuvialuit Regional Corporation depicting fascinating stories of Innuit legends.
