Passing Through, Walterdale Bridge,
Edmonton's river valley
18"x 24" Acrylics on Canvas
I've wanted to paint the new Walterdale Bridge for quite some time. I finally got a chance to paint it for my client Jennifer and just finished it! Jennifer's family is moving to Calgary soon and they will have an amazing keepsake of Edmonton with them there! Paper giclee prints that are 12"x16" are now available for $45+gst and I also have canvas giclee reproductions in various sizes now available. It takes about 5 business days for your stretched giclee to be ready for your order and I stock the paper prints and greeting cards for a quick turnaround. Like all of my canvas giclees it comes wired on the back, signed and ready to hang on your wall to enjoy! I also have it available as 5"x 7" greeting cards now. They are blank inside for your special message.
Hilary, Super Nurse
Pencil and watercolour pencil on arches paper
When I was contacted by Hilary's husband to create Hilary into a super hero for her birthday, I didn't hesitate to say yes. She is a nurse that works in the icu department. Covid19 pushes our medical professionals to their limits every day and they all need to be reminded of how the public see them, as super heros. So it was my honor to draw Hilary as I'm all about girl power. Thank you Hilary! We are grateful for you all, stay safe and this too shall pass.
The back story of how this inspired piece came about is pretty awesome. After I was approached to do this I found this street artist named FAKE @iamfake through instragram and loved the street art that he created with spray paint called "super nurse". I contacted him and he approved me using his image as my inspiration to create Hilary. I later found out that his image has been worn by celebrities like Julianne Moore and has been shown in London and New York so I am very grateful to have been given the go ahead by him to immortalize Hilary in my drawing. The ekg hearbeat that I added is to symbolize that nurses are the heartbeat and help to save lives.
Many of you may know that pencil, charcoal and mixed media drawings are something that I do when requested. I have a series of women that I drew over 20 years ago of powerful fantasy women that I have in my private collection that are very empowering. I also have been drawing peoples cars here and there and you can see a sample under my commissions but I have several to show upon request. I am open to creating more commissions of our beloved medical workers and essential workers with this same concept, so enquire within.
Beside the Still Waters
12"x 16" Acrylics on Birch Panel
Moraine Lake, Alberta
At the end of July during Phase 3 of the Covid 19, I was finally able to go on a business road trip to re-spark my creativity and to take reference photos of what I would like to paint in our beautiful country; and this spot and painting has started my new "On the Road Again" painting series. When I was there it was like being in a holy sanctuary to me, so utterly beautiful and awe inspiring. People travel from all over the world to visit this Unesco World Heritage Site in Lake Louise and they will again when this passes. Paper and giclee canvas reproductions are now available and in stock. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the beauty around us...
On the Wings of an Angel, dedicated to Captain Jenn Casey of the Canadian Snowbirds. For full details about this painting please listen to my short video.

30"x 40" Acrylics on Birch Panel
Edmonton river valley trail
This painting was created for Connie and is now hanging in her home. The original painting is so large (30"x40") that it felt like I could walk into the trail when I was painting it. It is done in the beautiful fall colours of yellow and green and was painted specifically like most of my paintings; to bring a sense of joy into the viewers eyes and soul. Reproductions are now available in various sizes starting with smaller 12"x 16" prints for $45. For prints larger than the paper prints just contact me direct as I don't have a breakdown from my art supplier just yet.

Tonik on the Dock
Acrylics on Canvas
This original was painted for Kim to give as a gift to a loved one. What a special gift to receive of a beloved dog Tonik. It was such a pleasure to make Kim's vision of what he wanted painted into a reality! I can do that for you too.
This custom mosaic pillar that I designed, created and installed transformed the pillar that used to be there. This project was done in my studio and then installed onsite.
