Having painted in both watercolour and oil paints, the versatility of acrylic has been dominant
for the last number of years. I work mostly on large canvases, for the love of the visual impact of
size, which can dominate the visual field, and still allows one to get lost in the abstract of
texture and details.

Born in Plymouth, England, raised in Toronto, studied at the Ontario College of Art, and for the
last twenty-some years residing in rural Grey County in the heart of Niagara Escarpment
country has provided me with a wealth of inspiration. My driving force has always been a need
to create, in all mediums: wood, stone, plastic, and metal, but mostly in paint. It is much like
hunger – the longer it goes without expression, the greater the outpouring of creative energy.
My goal is to always grow as a painter, oh and, I guess, as a person as well.
