Statement

The world presents itself and occasionally, I take the time to observe. There are times when the observation takes on the form of obsession, at other times it is the casual encounter. These moments become photographs. Believing that the normal needs to be elevated by exaggeration or simplification, I apply my skills to interpret these instances.

I've exhibited in group and one person shows since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints. My work, since 1998, has focused on computer manipulated photographs. The prints have been exhibited extensively through 150 exhibitions, primarily in US university, college, and community galleries. The exhibitions have been in; BC, Alberta, Ontario and in 31 American States.

Also, an exhibitor in 12 virtual web galleries, associated with academic conferences focused on digital imaging in Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In 2006, I began publishing my completed projects as books, and have completed sixteen books to date, with others in development to be published in 2012.

Born and educated in Alberta, I have been living in Victoria, on Canada's West Coast, since 1984.
