Fur or feathers, hooves or paws, from my own four-legged companions to the wild creatures I encounter, animals and birds fascinate me and fuel my creative drive. I'm a life-long British Columbia artist and have been making art since I could first hold a pencil. I'm also a senior signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA).
I divide my time between my Mayne Island cottage and studio, and my live/work townhouse/studio in South Surrey BC. I share my life with Hugo the cat and a mischievous cocker spaniel named Lily.

Yellow Bird Art Studio
Located steps from my Mayne Island cottage, my cozy art studio isn't big but it's an action-packed place filled with art. It's open by appointment or as advertised. Details can be found on my website.
The Watering Hole
This whimsical coloured pencil drawing features some of the birds who visit my Mayne Island bird bath.
I have been creating custom portraits of dogs, cats and horses for as long as I can remember. Pictured here is my own little cocker spaniel Lily. Samples of portraits and more information can be found on my website.
