I am a honours graduate of the Ontario College of Art,  Fine Art department, where I received the Elizabeth Greenshield Scholarship, and spent  my graduating year studying painting in Florence, Italy.   After graduating, I was an “indie” artist  for numerous decades organizing my own exhibits,  and  was represented by Engine Gallery with Steven Schwartz for a number of years but currently  I am  happily back  on the “indie” path.  For the new year, 2019, I am moving away from the large floral and raven paintings  which I pursued for  a period of 12 years  and  am trying to do smaller works and working from “life” rather then photographs. Daily sort of  poetic expressions rather then the weeks/ months long complex  compositions. It’s a change I’ve done throughout my career, either from large to small or small to large, to rekindle my enthusiasm and inspiration.

Finally a little about my  career as an artist. I  was an art fundamentals painting and drawing instructor  for the Toronto Board of Education  and at Sheridan College  and when I moved to Port Hope I sort of got away from  teaching. On this website I’m going to try to resurrect that part of my career and also try my hand at writing  as well.
