In 2004, I graduated from the three-year, full-time program in graphic design and illustration — the IDEA program — at now Capilano University in North Vancouver, British Columbia. This was a new beginning for me, a change in direction from my previous career in law publishing, although not as wholly discontinuous as it might seem.

Now, over a decade later, I continue to build on this foundation. My graphic design work in the past few years has focused on environmental design — a graphic floor covering for the BC Electric Building in Vancouver, a display wall for The Keg Restaurant on King Street in Toronto, and two large photo-history walls in the new Hy’s Restaurant in Calgary. My interest in craft continues and for a time I served as a member of the board of directors for the Craft Council of British Columbia. I am an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and of the Federation of Canadian Artists. I paint for juried shows and as commissioned.

…And I continue to apply my experience in law publishing as a contributor since 2003 to Road Rules, a weekly article on motor vehicle law and road safety published in many local community newspapers in the BC lower mainland and online at www.roadrules.ca.

My website is my online portfolio showing the range of my art-making and writing activities.
