The British Columbia and Western Alberta Panorama depicts Western Canada from the Prairies to the Pacific Ocean in isometric relief and includes every mountain, lake, town, glacier and other features in a realistic manner.

It was researched and laidout, hand drawn, and painted over a period of four years. The original painting is apx. 2.6 x 1.9meters (about 8.5 x 6.2 feet). The research materials used in the production of this Panorama include some 700 topographical maps, hundreds of oblique aerial photographs and thousands of databased images from sources such as books, magazines, and Canadian Alpine journals dating as far back as the 1930s.

Ever since man first climbed up a hill, or carried himself aloft in a hot air balloon, he has been seeking a better view of his surroundings. Today we can see the earth from space, but our view is often obscured by clouds, and details are lost due to the scale of the image. Panoramic Illustration fills the gap by providing a highly accurate representation of an area from the illustrator's point of view, which emphasizes certain features to make them more clearly visible. I hope that the viewer of the British Columbia and Western Alberta panorama gets a sense of the wonderful diversity and beauty of this special corner of the world.
