Background

Rob

I was born in 1951 in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley in a town called Vernon.

In 1969, I was awarded a scholarship to attend The Vancouver School of Art, now known as The Emily Carr School. I studied there until 1973 when I graduated in painting.

Since then I’ve had six one-man shows. My work has also been in many juried and group shows in public and private galleries.

I have lived and painted in the Okanagan, Vancouver, B.C’s Sunshine Coast, Toronto,
New York, and Galisteo, New Mexico. I’m currently living on Vancouver Island in the Comox Valley.
