As an artist I get my inspiration from my own experiences; everyday things that demand a visual interpretation. However personal, I strives to articulate the images in a way that you, the viewer, can attach your own personal story. My hope is to touch on subjects and experiences that bring forth a memory or a feeling that will connect you with the image. “With each subject I try to capture an atmosphere through the colour and light, in an attempt to push the image toward a deeper meaning about human nature”.
I received an honours degree in Fine Art at the University of Guelph, and have worked for the past 27 years as a professional artist in both soft pastel and oil paint. I teach classes in both mediums from my studio in Guelph On. I have been a member of the Pastel Artists of Canada for the past 6 years and have been awarded Master Pastelist status. My work is held in private and corporate collections throughout Canada, United States, Australia and New Zealand.
I am currently represented by three galleries: The Muse Gallery, Toronto, On, The Water Street Gallery, Douglas Michigan, and Crown and Press, Hamilton, On.
