A native to Canada, my interest in art began with I was quite young. It was not unusual to find me either painting, sketching or wandering about with a camera taking photographs.
My first painting, oh years & years ago, involved the canals that are used to connect the Great Lakes. It was an oil painting. Terribly messy compared to what I am capable of now seeing as I happen to be entirely self taught.
Since then my technique has improved. I have also expanded beyond oil & pastels to digital artwork and of course photography.
