Numerous commissions enabled him to pursue his beloved art and sold out shows would always end the season. In 1982 he met and Married Norma and became Father to John Lee aged 10. They settled in an 1846 farmhouse Gallery and lived there until 1996. A move to White Rock followed and Voja was overwhelmed with BC’s natural beauty.
