I live in North Vancouver, BC and have been a practicing artist for over fifty years. My inspiration is in the nature that surrounds me. Since early childhood I have explored the mountains around Vancouver and then later the Coastal Mountains of BC.  Their natural beauty compels me to pay them  homage. This mysterious longing for nature becomes infused with my need to pick up pencils, watercolors, oils or an etcher's needle and start transcribing onto paper, canvas or copper plate.This process satisfies my soul - if there is a chance my art satisfies the soul of my viewers, then I have done what I have set out to do.
