Living in Ottawa, Ontario learnt the techniques of the masters and went on to study portraiture and figurative works. Later self taught color and movement while utilizing the imagination.
Works can be found in collections throughout North America, as well as in England, India, Italy and Singapore.
I am an oil painter that uses the imagination to create the scene and observations to fill it. With respect to nature I intertwine its force with our sense of being. Always changing, always new.
