All my life I've been an artist, I formally studied Fine Art and Fine Art History at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Ontario Canada, under the mentorship of the late award winning Canadian Painter Michal Manson, and was featured in the Robert Langden Art Gallery in the late 1980s. I've studied Art all over the world from the California Coast to various locations in Europe.

Initially a realist painter, I modeled my work after Alex Colville and Ken Danby. Yet, my painting style kept pulling me back to images from the Group of Seven, Kandinsky, Pollock, Wool, Zóbel and Monet. After years of honing my style I learned that capturing the emotion of the scene, or the experience of it, was a much more satisfying journey. I paint in both acrylic and oil and prefer to combine the two, oil over acrylic.

I now reside in Niagara Wine Country, in Ontario Canada. Beyond the obvious influences of the Canadian horseshoe falls and the great whirlpool, it is the world's largest naturally occurring biosphere. The vistas that include vineyards as far as you can see, gorgeous hiking trails, the shores of both lake Ontario and lake Erie and the breath-taking Niagara Escarpment are now the daily influences that seep their way into my work.

My work is hanging in the TAG Art Gallery in St. Catharines Ontario Canada and has been recently featured in Lynn Lawler's Art Blog, at The Hub On Queen in Niagara Falls and at Niagara Night of Art. I'm also a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, a sculptor, graphic artist and 3D modelist.
