This mural in Waterloo was a private commission by Gary Petker of Petker and Associates. He wanted to show his appreciation for the Canadian Armed Forces and with some direction let me design the layout.

I started at the second world war and loosely travelled through to Afghanistan. It was important to show that our armed forces get involved with community emergencies such as Sea and Air rescue. Also that they work at forming relationships. Showing our ethnic and sexual diversity was also important. The silhouettes represent the shadows of our soldiers that will never fade.

This mural is approx. 640 sq. ft.

This mural faces the Kitchener Waterloo Navy Club's building. This is a club for veterans. 

I learned so much about our service people from talking with them and their families.

This mural has been in the newspaper 3 times and I had a 30 minute interview on 570 news radio.

At the dedication we raised over $2,000. for the "Wounded Warriors" fund. 

The 2nd mural for Arthur was painted on aluminium panels and depicts the surveying of the Jones Baseline. Originally the survey was to start at Hamilton Bay Lake Ontario and end at the source for the Grand River. Unfortunately they missed the source and ended at what is now the Town of Arthur. It was a mixed group of which half were from the six nations. It was recorded that over 600 Rattlesnakes were killed during this survey that ended in October 1796.

This mural is 224 sq. ft.

The above mural was painted for the town of Arthur which is recognized as Canada's most patriotic village for the 1st and 2nd world wars. To express that I was commissioned to paint this mural. The last photograph is of Dr. Eva Olsson and myself. Dr. Olsson is a holocaust survivor and an amazing person. I was honored that she posed with me for this shot.

This mural is approx. 480 square feet.
