The Artist and The Beast
Yes, I do commissions.
MY RV - A MOBILE ART STUDIO - THE STORY IN PICTURES
In the fall of 2016 I purchased a 1979, 19' Class C motorhome, it was perfect. For me remodeling my RV, I aptly dubbed The Beast, meant turning her into a home and a studio. The thing about class C RVs is that everything comes pretty standard as far as factory amenities. You have your 1979 wallpaper and upholstery, plus repair needs both mechanical and structural. Ultimately I wanted my RV studio to have my own vision of décor on a budget, while adding both comfort, safety and functionality.
I first started making artwork like most children when I was very young, by the time I finished high school I was on my way to art college. I graduated from a 4 years arts program at Alberta College of Art in Canada and was employed as an illustrator/graphic designer. Thus began a long professional career in advertising with successful participation in many art shows along the way. Today, I'm making my living as an illustrator and fine artist.
I do art commissions for clients around the world and illustrate and co-create the Jax & Jillian comic series. I'm sharing my art adventures with the hope that my little vintage RV will help bring people who enjoy RVing, nature, art and seeing new places on an artist journey. I invite you to came along for the ride.

JAX & JILLIAN COMIC - READ THE FIRST ISSUE
Illustrating a comic has been such fun, working with my son and co-creator has been a joy. We devised the comic as an exploration of Canada and it's diversity. Each issue puts Jax & Jillian in a different province or territory; as they move forward with the main plot, they, along with the reader, will also be exposed to the history and culture of the land. For them, what began as a simple hike turns into a cross country adventure that will prove that they will stand to the last to defend their home, no matter the odds.
