Background David and his wife Jacqueline, travel extensively around the world and it has been a rewarding experience for them to be exposed to different cultures and better appreciate the way other people live. He has been profoundly influenced by the natural beauty of other countries. He spent a year traveling, by boat around Vancouver Island, the west coast of British Columbia, and the Queen Charlotte Islands. These experiences of seeing the beautiful coastline of British Columbia show in the representations of his work. During his first year at the University of Victoria, while taking fine art, he had the opportunity to do a study of Orca whales. The owner of Sealand of the Pacific, now Oak Bay Marina, sponsored him to do a photographic and film study of these rare Species. During this time he was introduced to the famous Jacques Cousteau Scientists, who came to study and film these unique whales. He had the honor of being allowed to do some filming with them. Later in life this gave him the inspiration to paint some of his most popular coastal scenes. David is a past President of the Victoria Society of Artists, a founding member of a successful artists Co-Op in Victoria, and the original organizer for one of the largest gatherings of artists, famous and budding, in British Columbia, at the world renowned gardens of Hatley Castle, now Royal Roads University.

My love of art has been inspired by the visual beauty of our country. The range of work that I produce is characterized by a sense of realism, although I love the freedom that watercolour's give when I apply wet into wet to create interesting values and patterns. In the last few years I have added the medium of acrylic and used it with watercolor to produce mixed media works involving wildlife, portraits, and abstract paintings. He has been Invited every year to do demonstration painting at the annual open house, at the residence of the Queen's representative, in British Columbia, the Lieutenant Governor.
