Artist's Biography

Formally educated in Fine Arts, my work has taken me from NYC to Vancouver, San Francisco to Toronto. Earlier in my career I worked for zoos, aquariums as an exhibit artist, designing, fabricating and installing natural history exhibits. Most recently I have worked as an exhibit technician in public art galleries. 

You can see me in action at my studio in Downtown Kitchener: #12 Globe Studios, 141 Whitney Place. My work can be seen at several galleries and boutiques from Stratford to Toronto.

Artist's Statement

It starts with an inspiration - an idea or a theme. I gather visual references and start to arrange them in an exciting compositional sketch. Then I choose an unusual colour palette to suit the mood of the painting, and, with each piece I try something new - a new colour combination, a dramatic brushstroke, etc.

I like to explore relationships - colours to other colours, people and patterns, etc. in my paintings. Lately I am fascinated by that creative force which makes artists express themselves. Are there higher guides? I am a merely a conduit for these messages. In my work you will see images of love and energy...
