Born in Windsor Ontario, I studied commercial art and continued studying art as a part time student at various studios and schools in Toronto including OCAD. I worked for several years professionally in advertising and design.
During these years I was never far from a canvas and always had a painting on the go. I worked in oils, watercolours, acrylics, printmaking, life drawing and pottery, but always returned to oils. Because of the richness and luminosity, I continued to develop my skills in oils and have stayed with them since the 1990’s.
Since moving to Georgetown Ontario in 2011, I have been able to focus exclusively on painting. I have been in numerous solo, group and juried shows, in 2015 I became an Elected Member of the Society of Canadian Artists and in 2019 I became an Elected Member of the Ontario Society of Artists.
The subject matter of my work is the landscape where my style has evolved from realism into contemporary impressionism. After I was selected as Artist in Residence in 2016 at the Red Door Gallery in Georgetown, I was then selected as a studio artist at Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre where I painted for 5 years. Now I am back to working in my cosy home studio keeping up with the demands for my work in galleries in Ontario and Quebec. My originals and prints are enjoyed across Canada, the United States and around the world.
