As a dual citizen, I’ve had the privilege of working with both the Royal Canadian Mint (since 2010) and the United States Mint (since 2014) to design coins and medals that celebrate the natural and cultural heritage of each of the two countries I love. I feel honored to see my work become a small part of the numismatic history of both countries.
Creating a design for a coin-size canvas is challenge I enjoy, but the creative aspect of making coins doesn’t end with the illustrations I submit. It is a collaboration between myself and the talented engravers who bring the two-dimensional artwork to life. Additionally, a variety of dedicated Mint staff and other stakeholders play important roles in the complex process of coin production.
