I just had the honour of installing an art exhibition of twelve of my award-winning small to large prints at the Waterloo Region Court House in downtown Kitchener, Ontario.

Thanks to Sylvia Galbraith and Norman Busse for making it happen. All prints are for sale and the show will be up until early January 2018.
