It was a huge challenge and honour to be accepted into the FCA’s annual Painting on the Edge International Juried show in Vancouver B.C. – also known as POTE.  Super stiff competition!  Much to my surprise and absolute delight, I was awarded the OPUS Art Supply Award for my painting – A Matter of Substance.

 Thank you OPUS for your kind corporate support of the arts and I will certainly enjoy this award.




It was a huge honour to have been awarded BEST IN SHOW at the Sidney Fine Art Show 2013 in Sidney, B.C.  The award was given to Jail House Rock.
