"I was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1966 to a family that encouraged artistic pursuits of all kinds - including writing, drawing, photography and music. At the age of 21 I came to Vancouver with the band I was in, in order to find a new drummer (we would eventually go through 8 before disbanding). I had not considered being an illustrator in spite of drawing my whole life, but now that I’m doing it, I cannot imagine any other job I would like to do more!
The artwork I produce is created digitally using my iPad pro, either with native apps or as a graphics tablet, and I am interested in juxtaposing traditional looking elements with purely digital elements to create something that looks new. My work is constantly evolving.
When I’m not drawing or pouring juice for my two kids, I play in a few bands with good friends, where the socializing is as important as the singing together. Lastly, in order to clear my head of everything else, I love to engage in a weekly game of ice hockey in the winter, and baseball in the summer."
