  • Painting
  • Drawing

I studied fine art at York University, commercial art at Mohawk College and met and discussed painting with my major influences:  Alex Colville and Andrew Wyeth.

My watercolours and acrylics begin with pencil drawings, colour studies and/or photography on site or with models.  While some are finished “in the field”, others are taken into my studio to expand on and refine the finished painting.  Working from Hamilton, Ontario with watercolour and acrylic, my realistic narrative style depicts Canadian landscapes, people, and objects within an environment.  I feel that if you cannot find beauty in our own back yard, you won’t find it anywhere.  Aside from local inspirations, I have also produced paintings from Prince Edward Island, the Bruce Peninsula and the Bahamas.  I am currently working on a 2022 "Hamilton Backyard Series".
