His current studio focus is in using 3D modeling environments to create surrealistic imagery for international exhibitions. He currently lives and teach in Victoria, BC, Canada. Don constructs his artwork like theatrical presentations. The actors in each visual set interact with and perform for the viewer. Through the stylistic use of realism, exaggeration, subdued colors, and strong lighting and shadow, Don attempts to arrange the actors in a way that connects a pivotal object or theme with object association, symbolism, and metaphor, drawing background technique from Baroque and Victorian art. For him, the enclosed space of the visual image is a dramatic cerebral theatre populated by realistic sets, objects, and figures which when combined with intention, offer challenging mental enigmas.
