growing up in a small town on the sunshine coast, in Sechelt BC, I was surrounded by woodworkers. learning how to work with wood and refinishing furniture, influenced my choice to hand mount archival prints onto wood. creating a painting like depth and texture to the piece is important, maintaining the raw natural beauty of the outdoors guides my practice.
for over a decade I represented Canada on the FIVB beach volleyball world tour. on tour when I wasn’t playing, I was taking photos and writing in notebooks. my ideas and photos from that time shaped my future and created a jumping off point for me. in pursuit of a more creative passion, I wrote the book more than medals which features some of the best athletes in the world. this book was the bridge that connected my time as a high level professional athlete to the more creative pursuit I follow now as a photographer and artist.
