BIOGRAPHY

 

 

I graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I majored in Editorial Illustration which is likely why my paintings tend to have a story behind them.

 

I love to combine reality with a bit of magic.  My process is to start a painting and see where it takes me.  As with all artists my paintings are based on experience…people I meet, places I've travelled. I enjoy working with texture and bright colours.

 

I’ve been able to share this with others as for many years I’ve been teaching at the Dundas Valley School of Art in Dundas, Ontario, as well as the Art Gallery of Burlington I Burlington, Ontario. 

 

To put it simply, I paint stories.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 

 

I think, for me, painting is rewarding, challenging and frustrating all at the same time.  The excitement with each new piece also brings with it a whole new set of problems to solve…composition, colour, technique etc.  I guess, along side my love for painting, it’s what keeps me pushing forward.  I haven’t solved all the problems yet.
