Father - Husband - Friend - Artist?

I have a gorgeous wife (Kelly), two crazy kids (Sam and Sarah), and live in Prince George, British Columbia.  I have lived here most of my life and love everything the city has to offer.  I am fortunate to be surrounded by lakes, rivers, forests, mountains, and four seasons in the beautiful western province of Canada.

 

I have always been interested in drawing, painting and all types of art.  Sadly, I don't make my living from art but that hasn't seemed to stop my enthusiasm. 

 

Since the birth of my first child, Sam, in 2012, I have been drawn to children's books, specifically their illustrations.  I read picture books to my kids every night and often Sam has to remind me to keep reading as I have stopped to admire the pictures.   My favourite illustrators are Oliver Jeffers, Alex Latimer, Chris Haughton, Mike Lowery, Daniel Salmieri, and David Roberts. 

 

I enjoy creating my illustrations with pencil and paper but I find colouring with a traditional medium tedious, so lately, I have transitioned to digital art.  I create most of my illustrations, start to finish, on the iPad.
