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.


The "Love" show - a series of paintings inspired by Cirque du Soleil and the Beatles, opened in Vancouver on Feb 12, 2016 at Art Works Gallery
(604) 688-3301
and continued till March 6, 2016

The Beatles


click on image to enlarge:

Title: “The Beatles”
Medium: acrylic on canvas

Story: When the Beatles burst onto the music scene in the early sixties,
the world went mad.

The names of a few of their songs have been written across the surface of this
painting because it often only takes the title of one of their songs to
have memories flood back. Some bring joy. Some, such as, “Yesterday”, bring a sadness.

Certain colours do that for me as well.

I also wanted to include their parents names because the idea of
honouring generations is important to me. Ringo was 10 lbs when he was born. I just tossed that in for fun.
