  • ** Notes

    You've made it this far, congratulations! This website is a collection of some of my work. There is so much more than you have viewed here. I currently have 2 works from a Limited Edition Series at: 'truth and beauty' Gallery. You can find projects and works that are not included on this website at Redbubble & on my Blog, which you can get to by clicking the little 'globe' icon. My collection of work is large and some works unseen.

    Most anything you see on Redbubble and this website is for sale, except for a few Limited Editions. If you see something on this site that you would be interested in purchasing, just let me know and I can either guide you to it or if it is not on Redbubble, we can talk about what format / size you might want to purchase. I am thankful to work with a design firm and to have my work in many homes, businesses and hotels across Canada, the UK and throughout Europe.

    My Sold Out exhibition . . . Lullaby of the Trees, from December 2013 is hanging in the Sheraton Wall Centre, Vancouver . . . in the lounge. I am going to be a part of Capture Photo Fest in Vancouver, April 2017. Watch for updates coming soon.

    I shoot with a Canon Rebel T2i (with various lens) & my iPhone 6. As of late I have become slightly obsessed with Polaroids. I have a Polaroid sx-70, Polaroid 600, Impulse & Specra. Periodically shoot with Vintage Kodak Brownie (film - colour & black/white), Minolta 7000i (film), lots of experiemental shooting & some mixed media (painting, digital, film, scans, iPhone Apps). I have recently began painting for my own amusement.

    For the past 3 years I have been working on a photo project . . . The George Vamos (v'l) Project. Documenting over 3,000 paintings of the famous Kenyian Architect, unbeknownst to anyone that he had a passion for painting through his European travels. Working closely with his wife and her wonderful translater, I have introduced his works to the world through social media and working on a website to show all the works. Hoping to have a hand in a future Budapest, Hungary exhibition. This is a work in progress.
