I understand passion. I’m passionate about the ability of my art and work to educate, engage, entertain and inform the viewer. Using humour seamlessly merged with my singular illustration style I create timeless, memorable works that captivate my clients’ target audiences. Over the more than four decades of my career I have worked collaboratively with management teams and specialists which, depending on the project, can range from scientists, biologists and educators, to marketing and P.R. people. I have come to realize that the one thing we all share is no matter how different our approach to a project may be is … passion.
My skills as an illustrator, cartoonist, graphic designer and creative director have been put to good use by a diverse range of clients including NGOs, government agencies and corporations both large and small. Clients describe working with me as “fun” and “an absolute joy” and often mention my “incredible ability to understand and convey messages”.
In short if you’re looking for excellence in art and design execution, a collaborative approach fuelled by passion and an extraordinary gift for creative problem solving, look no further.

The statistics don’t begin to describe Robert’s wonderful talents. There is always something going on in the background of his art. Robert’s ability to convey true comedy without words gives his art a truly multilingual appeal.
Merebeth Switzer National Educational Coordinator, Ducks Unlimited Canada
As you know, DU has been circulating the Wetlands and the World project widely and have been receiving an excellent response from everyone who sees the work. The paper model creatures (you created) are an absolute joy. I just wanted you to know how much I have appreciated working with you and how much your creativity has meant in the development of this project.
Edward Klim President, International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association
I have had the pleasure of working with Robert in the development and expansion of our Safe Riders! snowmobile safety campaign. The success and the positive impact of the poster series (16) can be understood by knowing that we have printed and distributed well over 200,000 posters throughout North America. Robert is a key player in this effort.
