Artist Statement

When I moved from Saskatchewan to Kananaskis in Alberta over twenty years ago I was struck by the contrast of two separate cultures. There was the culture of the mountains and the one of the prairies.

The mountain culture that I first observed was full of beauty and serenity that was sometimes at odds with the goal oriented activities such as climbing that I was on the periphery of.

On moving to one of the oldest cattle towns in the foothills I became aware of just how sacred the cow is in this province. Certainly in a way very distinct from my vegan past.
