These pieces are from the liberated Museum project, in which models from the studio are returned and recontextualized to the Art Museums and streets of Europe and North America

After university I became a commercial photographer specializing in fashion and architecture. Since those days I taught art photography, photo journalism and the history of photography at the University of Victoria for many years. My work lies somewhere near an intersection between Piero della Francesca and Salvador Dali, between Sandro Botticelli and Paul Delvaux with a clear nod to Rubens and William Mortensen. Current work the image as metaphor and the nude, both in the studio and the landscape. I work out of a beautiful studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown.
