DEC 2009 - MAY 2011


This sketchbook is a celebration of life, art and travel.  As an artist, my photographs are intertwined with my paintings, illustrations and collages. Themes explored in this volume include Vancouver Pride, gay life and culture, current events, pop culture, nightlife, the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, clubbing,  LGBTQ+ life and queer culture, drag queens and drag culture.

An adventure to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (December 2009) is also celebrated in this book.  When I travel, I always learn directly from local artists for inspiration and cultural understanding.  Local colours, patterns and symbolism are celebrated and intertwined with my photography.  I learned from local artists at galleries and cultural events.  Travel guides at historical sites and monuments shared a wealth of information and inspired me with deep appreciation.  

Several years of Vancouver’s Pride parade and events are creatively represented in this volume.  Additionally, my mixed media acrylic, ink and watercolour portraits fill this book’s pages.

I hope that this sketchbook can inspire others in their travel journaling and scrapbooking ideas.
