The first half of 2018 has been extraordinary. It will be a year to remember for me, creatively speaking. Not only did I exhibit paintings in a local gallery here in Kamloops, I also published my first novel. We Are Mars is done and has been well received since it debuted a little over a month ago. I am very pleased with it as a culmination of two years of work.
It's been a long time coming - my first exhibition of artworks in Canada. It comes at a time of great change for me personally, and the name of the exhibition - Searching for Ground - speaks into my journey as an artist and how it has led me here, to Kamloops, and to an arts community that are warm, interesting, lively, but above all - accepting.
