Cover Artist Extraordinaire
In the fall of ’77 I migrated to Edmonton, Alberta and set about making a niche for myself here.
I’ve found some creative freedom here. Having lived in the cacophonic cauldron of Toronto, the life here is so much more enjoyable. From the nightlife to the nature – it’s got it all!
Came here ostensibly to just paint some murals but ended up freelancing in a variety of media and genres for various businesses and promotional enterprises. I’m quite enjoying what I get to do and can’t really see any other career I’d trade for this one.
