Default new guy from calgary

Been trolling painttalk for a while and thought I should take the plunge...
I do mostly residential interiors, some commercial and the occasional exterior. Besides painting, I specialize in earthen clay plasters (such as American Clay), Venetian plasters and hemp/lime plasters. (this last one is kinda new for me, but I'm really liking working with this material).

Welcome from the sunny Okanagan, BC.

I painted in Calgary for 7 years, The short exterior season bites.

@ RCP and TJ: I'll get some shots of the prototype hempcrete and hemp/lime plaster project I've been working on lately.
Hey actually there are some pictures of the early stages on the right hand side scroll panel of the website http://canamobuilding.com/. What you see there is only the hempcrete stage (with which I had no involvement). the structure has already gotten a couple of coats of lime/hemp plaster, which i did. photos of that soon to come
