Local and global partnerships
As I've grown older, I've come to appreciate the value of grassroots community. The wisdom is true that before we can change the world, we have to tidy up our own house. Then we can slowly move outward, cooperating with our neighbours and making increasingly large waves.
If you own a small business (in Vancouver or elsewhere) and you're interested in stocking my products or commissioning me for original paintings, I'd love to hear from you!
