He has become one of the country's leading abstract painters whose works are found in the permanent collections of Canadian galleries from coast to coast. While his early paintings immortalize historical and scenic views of rural Saskatchewan, his art has evolved continuously over his fifty-year career. An important member of the Saskatoon artistic community, he has also been a strong and generous supporter and patron of emerging young artists in western Canada.
