Born in the Alberta foothills, I’ve lived in Chicago, Montreal, Calgary, Canmore, and Victoria BC.  Gratefully, I’ve 9339 cropped and correctedreturned to living in a little house in the foothills.

Creative activity since childhood. Didn’t attend university until I was forty years old. Took me ’til age sixty to understand what “Art is life; life is Art” meant.

At The Banff Centre for three years, working in the Visual Arts Department.

Received Art Commission from Viscount Devonport, Northumberland, UK.

Six years Art Curator for philanthropist W. Brett Wilson, founding partner of FirstEnergy Capital Corp.

I’ve taught at university, in communities and 1:1. While there is a place for formal art training, that’s not how all art gets made. I believe everyone is creative. The hardest part is just to access our true nature.

I appreciate simplicity, true beauty that lasts over time, and a little wit and eclecticism that makes life more fun.  ~ Elliot Erwitt
