    Hi, I saw one of your paintings at The Gallery at the Banff Springs Hotel yesterday. I can’t seem to find it on your website. It was portrait orientation and had a large white bear standing up on its hind legs with all of the beautiful colors added in. Do you happen to have a picture of this? Thank you!

      Hi Nancy, thank you for writing and for your interest in my artwork. I think you are talking about “Grizzly in the Stars” which is a marvelous piece adorned with 22 cut white Topaz “stars”. I believe the painting is still available from Mountain Galleries. They might have transferred it to another gallery, there are locations in Banff, Jasper and Whistler. You can send an email to or phone 1-888-310-9726 Let me know if I can be of further help, and best wishes to you! Shannon

The best way to get pricing is to contact the Gallery who has the painting, they will be able to give you an accurate price and provide any additional details such as shipping and if taxes apply. Thank you for your interest! All my best Shannon

    Hello Shannon,
    I am interested in Hello Deer 3, and a gallery is not listed. Can you help me find out more about possibly purchasing this painting? Thanks.

    Hi Shannon – we saw one of your bear paintings at the Banff Springs to raise money for a children’s charity. We liked it so much, we bid on it. Do you know the status?

    Much appreciated – Catherine

I am sorry that I am not sure who was the winning bidder.. Perhaps you can contact the organizers? If you have no luck please get back to me and I can see if I can find another contact for you. Thanks again, Shannon

    hi, i saw a painting of yours at MICA lodge, and i would love to buy from you. what is the best route? i particularly like the wildlife pieces, and bears moreso.

    thank you, Jon

      Hi Jon,

      Thank you for your message. I am thrilled to meet you here online and to know that you enjoy my artwork.

      I love painting wildlife and I have a special feeling for painting bears. The Bear at MICA is a real favourite of mine, too, it was collected through The Lloyd Gallery in Penticton BC.

      The best route for acquiring one of my paintings is to contact the Gallery that is showing the painting you are interested in. If you are wish to have more details regarding a specific painting, you are welcome to contact me, or the Gallery, whichever you like. I am also open to commissions, for example: if you have a specific size in mind.

      The title, dimensions and Gallery will be indicated on the caption for each image. But if I missed anything, please let me, know.

      I look forward to hearing from you, I am happy to help in any way I can.

      Thank you again for writing!

      All my best
