Hello everyone,

It has been a while and I am sorry to all of you that have left me messages and wondered why I have not responded. Truly I am sorry. Big changes in my life are going on, scary and exciting at the same time. As some of you may know, I recently made a huge move and brought my family half way across Canada into new lands, new opportunities, and new beginnings !

I started working in house at a fantastic little animation studio, but for some strange reason I felt squeezed out of there, almost like I was led in some strange divine way. It was not the people in the studio or anything like that, but something bigger. I have been led to change and take on illustration full time freelance. It is a very exciting, and inspirational time for me, and a time of new things and tremendous possibilities,

one step at a time.

I have many exciting things I want to get going now that I am doing art full time. I am not hiding away in a dark chamber and I apologize for being away for so long.

so let the battle begin !!
