I have been a part of the arts scene on the West Coast of Vancouver Island for 40+ years now. I am a recognized Artist of the area and carry the title of “Ucluelet’s Artist” with pride. I’ve been heavily involved with the Pacific Rim Arts Society out here for 30 years; was President 6 times and spearheaded many art events. I have won numerous Art Awards; most currently the Sidney Fine Arts Show Honorable Mention 2018 and have won the Dianne Farris Juror’s Award from the Sooke Fine Arts Show in 2010. I have been published in magazines and books, most recently in the Island Arts Magazine, Spring 2019.
