Lower Mainland, BC, CANADA
An unassuming old Elm stood in the heart of 18th century Boston. This elm, the Liberty Tree, was a living symbol of freedom and unity to the generation of revolutionaries and free thinkers who shared inspiration, ideas and sense of community in the shadows of its boughs.
While I have grown up with greater freedoms than in 18th century Boston, I have struggled, at times, to hold true to my ideas and values, and to maintain integrity through my expression of art.
I hope that my images will serve as reminders of a time and place, an emotion and event, an age and energy, and have the details presented accurately, not perfectly.
As the Liberty Tree was an historic gathering place for pushing back the bounds of convention, it is my hope that here you will discover the inspiration that guides my work.
