Issac was inspired by the work of Robert Bateman, the same artist that eventually recommended his work to his publisher that afforded him numerous opportunities — including working with Walt Disney.

His gallery, located at 475 Upper Bench Rd. North, in Penticton will remain open over the summer as they continue to exhibit his work and operate his store.
