Currently I teach photography part-time to adults and continue to produce images.
At a very young age, like so many other children, I enjoyed exploring. That drive in me has never stopped. No matter how much I learn, I always seem to have more questions than answers. As the eldest child of our young family, I remember being transfixed looking through the passenger window of the station wagon or from the big windows on the passenger trains as we travelled to various destinations. I always wanted to stop the scenes so that I could somehow become part of the passing landscape.
I started taking photographs at age twelve and by age fifteen I was printing my own black and white photographs in the dark room of the print shop where I was working.
began working part-time in print shops at 14 years of age, and continued my career in nearly all aspects of print production, at various locations in many of Canada’s provinces until 1987.
In 1989, I began teaching Graphic Design and Photography at Delta Secondary School in Ladner, B.C. until I retired in 2011.
Retirement has allowed me to spend more time in the studio, to study, to research and print from my archives, to travel to photograph, and print new images.
