Rural Roots brought me here

I grew up in rural Northwestern Ontario, minutes from Minnesota, where I indeed rode my skidoo to the neighbours' house in winter! My backyard was the pebbled shores of Lake Superior, the hundreds of crisp cold lakes down every dirt road, and the endless acres of rolling fields at my family home.

I have a penchant for antiquities and history, and love to create original photographic images that are then hand crafted into functioning artwork and home décor. I want to bring people back to their memories as children, of their parents and grandparents, as well as the places they’ve been or want to go. My father and I still work out of the original workshop at my grandparents farm building all the frameworks for my wooden pieces.

I am greatly inspired by the areas in which I spend all my time when I am not working on my artwork. These areas include the aspen covered slopes of Kananaskis country, summits of mountains in the Bow Valley where I am now lucky enough to live, gladed back-country ski lines at my back door, and the glacial and sub alpine areas of the west Kootenays where I spend a lot of my summers backpacking, hiking and exploring. I come from rural roots, and as I grow older I realize that these roots play a major role in the work I now create.

I travel both far and wide and within my backyard of Western Canada to record the world I see on film to inspire others to live creatively. Often people ask if I took all of the photographs I sell, and I am happy to clarify that all images are the result of three things: 1. my creative self 2. researching a location to travel to 3. physically standing in the spot and pressing the shutter of my camera.

I make all of my artwork by hand, just for you! ♥

| my papers are:

lustre - my standard paper, half way between glossy and matte. Like satin finish for paint.

metallic- gives images an amazing extra depth due to silver particles being embedded directly in the emulsion of the paper

glossy - personal preference choice available if you do not like lustre
