Commissions

“Dusk Trees” on your wall

I’m always up for a commission. They push me to explore something I may not have otherwise. They open my eyes to a new view…yours! Let’s talk about what kind of image you want in the size you want it. 

If you will allow me, I can create the stage that is your life, your business or your home…

Freelance

I work for businesses and museums, creating imagery for commercial enterprises. Call me or write with a project in mind and we can definately work something out.

Karen, at work at the National Arts Centre workshop, creating some the mural pieces for the Oscar Peterson sculpture inaguration.

For many years I worked at Canada’s National Arts Centre. The three stages there are host to English Theatre, Theatre Francais, the NAC orchestra, and so many stage productions from across Canada and the world. I painted sets for them for 20 years, 17 of which I was the Head Scenic Artist, making me responsible for all the NAC production sets for each season. I worked with some of Canda’s top designers as well as some relative newcomers. I also retouched any sets that came into the building needing repair before opening night. It was an exciting time and an amazing opportunity. I am eternally grateful for the lessons learned there.
