Hello All!

Summer in Canada has finally arrived! In between trips to the beach I have been so fortunate to be involved in some very exciting projects!


-Created a very special box designed and made to the directors specifications… as well as other various props…I am sworn to secrecy until it airs !!


-Just finished a fantastic week of marbling the Casino set of the up coming feature film Percy Jackson! Amazing artists working on this project with up to 112 scenic painters!


-The Parade of Colour will again grace our festival of cultures from around the world.  Come out to Holland Park on Saturday July 18th at 1:30 to see our parade in all it’s glory!


-An Epic event this year being held in sunny Vancouver! I have been busy finding costumes, dancers, performers and props for this great event.  I am currently working on the design and build of a very special torch to be lit at the opening ceremonies. Check back soon for pictures!  The Opening Ceremonies will take place at GM Place on July 31 at 7pm with 10,000 Police and Firemen from 50 different countries coming out to participate.  Did I mention that I will also be a parade marshall for our 10,000 delegates?!


-A very special project and an honour to work with the legendary Haida Artist and Carver Jim Hart. In collaboration with White Monkey Design and the artist himself, I will be painting 6 casts of Jim’s famous piece, “The Raven”  which is currently on display at the top of the Totem pole in the Bill Read Gallery. These 6 new pieces will be displayed for purchase at the Douglas Reynolds Art Gallery on Granville St when finished.

A fantastic winter it has been! My apologies to everyone whom I may have lost touch with. This place has been all consuming.

Please check out the murals section of my web site. I have been busy here painting murals with the school kids and there are some great pictures.

La Ventana, Mexico has become my new home and I am so fortunate to have found it!
