"I started my art career painting social statement pieces from my  experiences as a lay minister in Kwanlun Dunn Village on the outskirts of  Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. The most important work from this period was  the series I titled, "A Requiem for Our Children" which described  existence within the Residential School system in Canada. Other noted  pieces were the ‘National Pastimes' series in the exhibition, INDIGENA  which commented on Canadian apathy toward the hardship and poverty of the  Native community in Canada .  Currently I have been revisiting many of the themes I have explored in  the past and have added computer art to the many mediums I practice. Most  recently I have been interested in art history and comparing it to  Aboriginal art history. I am often testing the European ego concerning  art, particular prized pieces of art that are termed masterpieces or  trend setting pieces as I did with The Classical Aboriginal Series. I am  working further with this theme as I have found the juxtapositioning,  superimposing, or the re-painting of such works offer the audience an  interesting perspective on art causing many to rethink and perhaps  revalue art in general."
