    This exhibit will then be exhibited in Florida, United States.

    Gallery Display 2021

    It was exciting to see that TUTT STREET GALLERY has placed my painting, “Trees-Saving Each Other and the Planet,” in their exhibition display window.  May 2021

    It was so rewarding to share my point of view and painting with Laura Savoie’s grade 10 IB class at Princess Margaret Secondary School in Penticton, BC. This class had just completed an independent study unit that focused on human impact on the environment. Their knowledge was impressive.

    Artwalk Lake Country 2014

    It was exciting to participate in the Okanagan's largest juried Art Show, Lake Country ArtWalk 2014 during the first weekend in September.  It was fun to discuss my art work with people from Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver, as well as the local people from Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, and the South Okanagan. Here I am talking to a little boy who was so happy to discover my painting of the eagles in my original work, Acrylic on Canvas, Where the Gentle Breezes Blow, 36" x 60."  This painting of the eagles, Where the Gentle Breezes Blow, is seen with some art collectors from Kelowna.  It was great to visit with many of the people from Kelowna that were also at the Oasis Okanagan Art Show opening reception at the Rotary Art Centre, at which time I was part of the juried art exhibition in May 2014.  Currently my work is on display at Spirit Ridge Resort & RAMADA Penticton, and of course visitors are always welcome to tour my studio.  At the present time I am preparing work for an exhibition at a Vancouver gallery.

The photo above is of a plein air session above the Naramata Road looking south, depicting the cliffs sourrounding the beautiful Okanagan Lake, and way in the background Skaha Lake. This painting is titled, Looking Back At You Penticton, Original Work, Acrylic on Canvas, 24" x 30." This painting was part of the 60 Artists in 60 Spaces exhibition.

  • Artwalk 2013

    The Okanagan's Largest Art Show, Lake Country ArtWalk 2013 September 7th and 8th was a wonderful success. There were thousands of people that came to view all of the 300 artists. It was very exciting to meet so many of my former clients, and see so many interested art collectors from the Thompson/Okanagan, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary area. The atmosphere was charged with energy and enthusiasm, as people viewed the visual arts! These photos show some of my original paintings that were displayed at my exhibition that weekend.

  • I was pleased to be involved in the juried exhibition at the special Lake Country Art Gallery theme Gallery. The theme, It's About Time, was represented by artists in many ways, literally, symbolically, and metaphorically. My painting, Songhees Across the Water, was chosen as it depicts the passing of time with the ancient Songhees carved pole on one side of the Inner Harbour, contrasting with the more modern Parliament buildings of Victoria, B.C.. This original painting, Acrylic on Canvas was on display until October 5th, 2013. Please view this painting in the Gallery section of this website.
