I grew up in southwest Saskatchewan and now reside on an acreage east of Swift Current with my wife. I have four kids and just as many grandkids and 34 chickens (I like chickens). I am a painter by trade, but in my free time you find me outside photographing the ducks on the pond, in the barn, riding my horse, tending my incubator (I like chickens), or in my studio painting. I enjoy many forms of art from drawing, photography, woodworking to painting. When I am in my studio, or with my chickens (I like chickens), all the stress that comes from day to day life seems to fade and I can literally lose hours.
