As far back as in grade school, I knew my strong point was artistry. The stuff I prefer to make is paintings-the old-fashioned way. With an easel and a good choice of paints, I set up indoors or outdoors. Even without an easel or in confined spaces, I face the challenge and adapt my creativity.

As an independent artist, I also built buildings and designed gardens. The three main projects are in British Columbia, Canada. The main theme in these projects is heritage.

Over the years, I involved myself with a number of artist groups and activities. More recently, I create wearable art mostly from lapidary and metal profiled at local markets.

Art signs and publishing art booklets is another form of presentation I enjoy. Since 1992, with DRWdesigns  I also sponsored small art shows and community projects, workshops and writing poetry.
