Other

I continue to exhibit my artwork many times a year in various alternative venues such as trade shows, music events, festivals, expos, and other events within Canada, and some internationally. Rather than mainstream galleries, these have proved more lucrative for exposure, followings, and sales. My animations have led to live visual performances with international music acts, including with my own music, at performance halls, music festivals and private venues. I frequently contribute artwork to fundraisers for local and international organizations multiple times a year.
