Perhaps most notorious for his work with Leanin' Tree greeting cards, Ben's work has been used to help illustrate books, magazines and a wide variety of other projects.

Ben's illustration style is decidedly cartoon, often slathered with a healthy dose of realism, which pretty much mirrors his view on life. Although best-known for his western themes, he does sneak out of that corral on occasion and try other walks of life.

His work for publication is now done solely digital, with Adobe PhotoShop and a Wacom tablet being his tools of choice.

His recent work on the childrens book Little Chief And Mighty Gopher: The Pemmican Frenzy landed several awards, including Moonbeam, Griffin, Nautilus and the Alberta Book Award.

Original Artwork Available

Ben has been painting for over 30 years, and although he has retired from the art show circuit some of his original paintings are still available. These works have been shown at such prestigious venues as the Calgary Stampede's Western Art Show; the Clymer Museum in Ellensburg, WA; the Charlie Russell Museum in Great Falls, MT; the National Cowboy Hall Of Fame in Oklahoma City, OK; the NFR's Cowboy Christmas in Las Vegas, NV; and his mom's fridge.

If you're in the market for something wildly different to adorn your corporate office, living room, den or any other wall space, please contact Ben. Most works are professionally framed, others are sold unframed.


The central Alberta resort town of Sylvan Lake commissioned Ben to do a life size bronze sculpture for their Milennium Celebration back in 2000 (pending a positive outcome of Y2K...). This impressive sculpture, entitled Birth, depicts handing off to the younger generation; the mother mermaid is tentatively letting go of her protective hold on her child, who is already looking excitedly to the future. A water fountain is incorporated into the monument, adding life and sparkle to the overall project.

It can be seen across from the library, just north of the tracks, about 2 blocks from the beachfront Lakeshore Drive.



This cute but shocked little feller is reeling after trying to drill into some hard-veined old coot whose veins have quit long ago. His beak is bent and crooked, and it's probably the last hole he'll ever drill. Entitled Hardening Of The Arteries, this limited edition bronze mosquito sculpture measures 14W x 21L x 9H, mounted on a walnut and rawhide base. Edition - 6. Price - $2450. Contact Ben for availability.
