Digital Art and Photography

Vancouver Island has been my home for more than a decade. It can be a glorious place, but also dark and mysterious. It’s the rain. It makes for forest green and lush in winter, when the rest of Canada is blanketed in snow. It is also the relentless Pacific ocean, the stands of tall timber, and colours of spring. It is the isolation of living on an island that makes the rest of the world seem to be just somewhere else. It is an easy thing to get lost in these parts.

Inkriver contains entirely original work in photography and graphic art. Nothing has been borrowed or reworked. Most of the pieces on the site have been created during the last decade. For information regarding prints, or collaboration, contact me using the link at the bottom of any page on the site.

Close Talkers

I have had these pieces in front of me in one form or another for several months this past year. I have developed a relationship with them. In In beginning, it was simply about people who are too much in your face and in your head. So, the first piece deals with individual conflict in the presence of others, the middle piece presents more of a planned and public context, and the final work references those who witness and silently pass judgment. It is a vicious cycle where truth circles the drain.

In the Clouds

There is possibly no finer place than Mount Newton on a foggy day in Central Saanich, especially in the off-season.
