This is a good way to keep up with me, if you’re interested:


Please read the Students section of the site.


Currently I do not hire other people. I have a small studio in my home on an island in Canada; until such a time as I can figure out how to possibly accommodate another person I will not be hiring anyone, nor can I take interns.


If you wish to interview me for a major publication, please do contact me directly.

If you wish to interview me for a blog or small publication, I may or may not be able to accommodate you as my time is very limited. However, I do appreciate your interest, so please inform me if you need to borrow images from the site for a blog post. Always please credit me and link back to my site.
