I have a passion for the outdoors, and outdoor recreation. I love camping, canoe tripping, mt. biking, skiing, and reading. Most of my favourite books are about explorers, and peoples adventures in the outdoors such as climbing Mt. Everest, to exploring remote areas of Canada by canoe or sailing around the world. Growing up every summer my family went on canoe trips in northern Ontario. Georgian Bay has a fond spot in my heart, especially the north channel. I also like art in particular drawing. My favourite medium is pencil and pencil crayon. My artwork reflects my love for being in the outdoors and nature. Art from a young  age has always been an activity I have found really enjoyable. I have multiple sketchbooks full of drawings, too many to share them all. Here’s just a few pictures. Hope you enjoy my artwork as much as I do creating it.
