‘No Clones Study #2’

‘No Clones Study #2’-2018, 40″x 40″ Spring in the forest and the dog walking is easy… My dog, George agrees, although he’ll always try to “double down” on duration.

‘George’s Forest Dream’

‘George’s Forest Dream’-2017, 40″x40″ My Dog “George” thinks he owns this forest! He carefully sniffs and dispenses his “social media communications” on all his carefully selected spots. He carefully analyses everything through his nose. I’m convinced he’s primarily a nose attached to a brain… Like any dog; if you don’t distract him from his nose, you won’t get his attention.

‘Green Timbers Study #3’

‘Green Timbers Study #3’-2017, 40″x 40″ I love the temperate rainforests of British Columbia; my dog’s a big fan too. Green Timbers forest is fully in the center of Surrey and is a city preserve.

‘Green Timbers Tunnel with Dog’

Being a charming Standard Poodle, he’s a very good poser and very patient with…

‘Cathedral Grove Portal’-2015, 45″x90″ I love being in the forest but it has a dark side too. This piece mixes the beautiful with the unknown, which for me, are two of the best things about the forest. As long as it’s going well; it’s great. Cathedral Grove is an Old Growth Forest on Vancouver Island.
