A Lifetime of Art and Science
For most of my life, I have been active in visual arts, and most recently, studied drawing, design, and sculpture with professional artists, visited performing and visual arts venues throughout Europe. I am currently a leader of the Peninsula Carvers wood carving club in South Surrey, BC, Canada as well as an active member of the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association, juried member of the Sculptors Society of BC, and juried member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. I have been featured in international publications, and my stone and wood carvings have won many awards at local and international juried shows. .
