JIM GORDANEER was my painting instructor during my art college days at the Victoria College of Art in Victoria, BC. I started off at the college in 1987 attending night classes in drawing and painting; I loved that so much I attended their 6-week Summer immersion course twice! I attended the College full time and graduated cum laude in 1992.

Jim was a real inspiration to us all in our college days. I see Jim's influence in the way I like to research things, make a million sketches and value studies before I  begin to paint.
