After finishing college I moved to Vancouver where I bought a book on how to make holograms which seemed, at that time, to have a financially promising future. So I did a bit of research and came across the holography studio of Al Razutis. which was filled with stunning holograms. Indeed, they were so stunning I asked him to teach me how to make them. He agreed and when the lessons ended, he hired me to help him make 3-D holograms and attach them to real sculptures made from metal, plastic and wood.

Razutis's studio was also part of a vibrant art scene that included the animator Shelley McIntosh, the artist Gary Lee-Nova, the artist Catherine McTavish, the choreographer Evelyn Roth, the holographer Jerry Pethick, the animators Marv Newland and Al Sens, the art lecturers Ian Wallace and Sam Carter, the filmmaker David Rimmer as well as the contemporary art curators Bau-Xi Huang, Jack Hardman, and Alvin Balkind.

I want to thank all of these people for encouraging me to make art.
