Most of Wayne’s life has been on the West Coast enjoying the outdoors and it shows in his works. As a boy, he spent summers at Sprout Lake, the falls Salmon fishing and the rest of his time with the Boy Scouts. At seventeen, he got his first taste of travel and went to the 4th Nippon Boy Scout Jamboree in Japan. He brought over 300 pictures of his trip home. Little did he know his camera would someday be replaced by his brush! After graduating from university he moved around a little and then with his wife Sandra and their two children Michael and Kristin settled in Surrey. The summers still meant camping and some fishing!
As he approached retirement, he started restoring old vehicles which including painting them! On one vacation with his wife Sandra, she got him to try oil painting. He started painting old cars onto canvas and then moved to painting birds, fish and other outdoor life! He has now been drawn back to painting old metal again, but this time it is the old hand saws that interest him. He is now restoring these old carpenters and loggers saws and using them as his canvas. These saws are now hanging from the west coast of Vancouver Island to Newfoundland. He has a 60 inch, two men bucking saw showing the life cycle of the Pacific Salmon at the Little Campbell Fish Hatchery’s Education Centre.
