The written works section is some articles that I have written that are not on the topic of Printing or the Web.
Some of them I wrote as essays while I was at Langara taking a course on writing for the web.
The other current item is my self-published book I've written on the topic of Roses and their colour meaning called Rose Savvy. Currently, this book is available on-line as an E-Book (PDF and reflowable EPUB) at my shop. However, if your interested in a hard copy you can contact me.
Some Articles I wrote at Langara in my Writing for the Web & Adobe Classes:
Memories of Glass Part 1
I remember the sight of red, green and blue broken glass on a late afternoon walk with my parents along the south arm of the Fraser River. From the 1950’s up until the late 1990’s the river had been a dumping ground of car parts, firewood, pottery and glass. I had to carefully wander over the iron-soaked mud and sand to avoid tripping over semi-submerged cinder blocks and springs to find the coloured glass. I recall as the light began to dim, I could see the tide rise and hear the sound of the glass tinkling like a wind chime in the waves of a tugboat’s wake. These walks brought to me an array of memories about coloured glass. read more

Rose Colour, Message and Symbolism
About a year ago I self-published a booklet. My friend Arlene edited the book and I drew coloured illustrations for it.
The booklet is a is about rose colour and how throughout history there are meanings associated with:
- Rose colour - single or in a collection
- Form of a rose
- Quantity of roses
This is a great book to have in your collection if you are a :
- Rose Society Enthusiast
- Corporate Event Planner
- Lover of flowers
