PERSONAL

Flagsmallest I always enjoy warmer winters, with summers at my home in Delta, BC, Canada – having recently enjoyed the jungles of both Costa Rica and Borneo. Other cultures are important to me and as an eBook “100 Travel Moments – In 42 Countries“, encompasses this. I am now on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico until May 1st – writing “Among Mayan Ruins“, almost completed, to be published in June.

Web-Lon-2With retiring from commerce over a dozen years ago, my endeavours began with composing. This evolved into the musical play “Life’s Third Quarter” – followed by writing. Composing and writing film scripts was enjoyable, but probably mediocre. I’ve now set them both aside. My books were then published and successfully sold, however, the ongoing writing of eBooks now gives me greater freedom.

As my spacescape series is completed, I’m now working on a one-hour video titled “Exoplanets And Exotic Stars“. It will be shown when 125 of my spacescapes are exhibited for sale in the late spring of 2017.

RASC logoI enjoy membership in the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. Founded in 1868, it is made up of 5000 astronomy enthusiasts, scientists and astronomy professionals. Collaboration with the RASC keeps me informed of many exciting and new celestial happenings, which form the basis of my spacescapes.

Having studied Art History and Painting Technique in Paris, France, in the sixties – Cubism and Abstract Expressionism, mostly non-objective works, had been my focus.

My first 2003 series included the 15 seascapes shown here in Slide Show #9. As these seascapes have been sold, presenting these slides is just for fun.
