When I made the decision years ago to relocate from a big city to the Grey-Bruce region, I knew it was the right thing to do. Living here has proven to be incredibly motivating. From the rural areas that embrace me, to the scenic beaches along the shorelines, to the walking trails of the parks, to the unspoiled beauty of the peninsula. This area forces me past my limits to create vibrant, distinct, daring and occasionally, atypical pieces. Much of my artwork now reflects what I see and experience here.
My initial training began with fine art classes at the Beal School of Art, followed by Fanshawe College, both located in London, Ontario. Over the years, given that learning truly is a life-long experience, I came to consider myself for the most part to be self-taught. For this reason I am constantly expanding my grasp of acrylic and oil painting, pastels or mixed media via exploration, experimentation, art videos/books by famous artists and sessions with other artists.
I consider myself fortunate to be associated with the gifted yet diverse array of fellow artist at Saugeen Artists. Each one generates spectacular art pieces in their preferred media, which in turn builds on a very supportive and creative environment.
