I work on commission creating Home and Garden Portraits. These are highly detailed to suit, and include loved ones, all your favourite flowers and plants species. They are typically done within a 30x40 format or 22x30. They are finely resolved and can include more than one "scene" or perspective. They have been described as "Your life in a Painting". My background as an architectural illustrator brought me into creating these very personalized Home and Garden Portraits. I have created these heirloom works of art for over 30 years. You can see my work at I have some experience with kids books illustration, and would love to do more. With the course in kid's book publishing I am taking at UBC, and my extensive experience working for clients, architects and some publishers experience, I will be a great choice for a publisher looking for a very unique, realistic yet whimsical style. I will create an outstanding product for kids book and rated this category as Proficient simply reflecting honestly experience in this area.
