On Etsy since 2018

Professional Canadian Artist situated in Calgary, AB, nestled in the foothills of the Rockies.

I am a husband, father and artist. I love to explore the outdoors with my family, hiking or on my bike.

My art is a personal passion and joy. I am delighted that I can share my work with you.

Birds have always been a fascination for me. Growing up, my companion was a beloved Cockatiel named Aussi. The beauty and grace of birds hold so much to be admired. The intricacy and order of their graceful lines and feathers juxtaposed against the back drop of chaos in the coalescence of thousands of individual feather strands moving in every direction. For an artist who had devoted his study to the discipline of line and ink, the beauty of birds is essentially an infinity pool of overflowing content.

While I also love to represent all wildlife (North American in particular), I will always return to my number one passion; birds.

I am a classically trained professional artist, studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design (now Alberta University of the Arts). I have a Baccalaureate in Fine Arts with a major in Drawing. My area of focus was figurative drawing, and I minored in Printmaking with a focus in Silkscreen.

Frequently asked questions
Will I need to buy a fancy custom frame for my purchase?

No. All of my prints fit in standard sized frames and mats. If you are having difficulty with a decision, please contact me for further assistance.

How come my linocut print looks slightly different than the picture?

Each linocut print is hand printed off of a hand carved block of linoleum. The hand printing process either involves a large etching press that I use for larger pieces, or a japanese baren or wooden spoon used to burnish the back of the paper. This can result in small details getting printed (referred to as "noise"). This is considered to be part of the charm with hand printed items, and means that each print is unique in its own right.

Why is my package taking so long to arrive?

Due to the worldwide pandemic, I have noticed a severe lag time on packages heading out of country. During Holidays, it was taking as long as 5 weeks for packages to get to major destinations in the US. during regular times, on average I find it takes 2-3 business weeks to get a package into the US (typically closer to 2).

Can you provide a tracking number?

In order to keep costs on artwork down, packages are sent without tracking (other than 11x14 and larger prints going to Canada, which must be sent as a parcel). If there is an issue and you print never arrives, I will gladly reship a new one to you.

When should I expect you to ship my package?

When I have orders, I go to the post office once a week. Typically I go on Wednesday or Thursday. I am limiting my tips to limit the spread of Covid 19. I appreciate your understanding.

I live in Calgary, can I just pick my package up?

Yes! Just message me upon purchase, and I will place the package in a secure spot for you to pick up at your convenience.
