Art Notes

This work depicts the famous Yukon town of Dawson during the height of the northern gold rush, around 1898. The era I depicted in Dawson must have been brutal indeed. Yet, with the hardships of survival, comes the exuberance of comraderie. I hope I've captured both aspects in this work, one of the most detailed of my early career.
