Because of his artwork, he traveled nationally and internationally to countries such as Europe, South America, and the United States where some of his paintings were sold. In addition, some of the paintings are displayed locally at the Yellowhead Tribal College, Confederacy of Treaty Six Office, Alexis First Nations School, Hall and the Multi-Center.
