Along my travels this week, I bumped into Pat Martin Bates, Artist, and former Irish Rover and artist, Will Millar.

I remember Pat from my visual arts days at the University of Victoria, and Will mostly through his music and performances.

It’s interesting to hear the variety of experiences that helps shape an artists creation, their respective successes, and contributions to the arts.
