From 2013 to the present, a main project has been the Woodwynn Peace Garden at Woodwynn Farms, a therapeutic community for the homeless. The Peace Garden includes a labyrinth with herbs, fruits and vegetables incorporated.

I am currently featured at Art Works Gallery in Vancouver as well as Sooke Harbour House and my wife Elizabeth has her glass-on-glass mosaics there too.

and I also have work available at Merridale Cider and the Avens Gallery in Canmore Alberta.

“Shadows and Light”


I was really pleased with how the Shadows and Light painting turned out. It has a certain darkness that I like and a mystery that is somehow very personal. It was based on one of my many visits to Gonzales Bay here in Victoria BC. It is not a realistic version of reality. Just inspired by the shapes and houses set along the slopes of the Bay. I see shapes and respond to them. I see shadows and light. It is a small painting for an intimate space. It is about people and their closeness to each other. Some people enjoy being more obvious and out there…. and some people who enjoy sitting in the shadows.
