I’m a self-taught artist, born in Ottawa, now working in Toronto, Canada. I began painting with watercolours in 1988, then acrylics and am currently painting in oils. I’m presently seeking gallery representation.

I’m fascinated by the workings of the human mind, the functions and dysfunctions that enable us to create, imagine and dream. I want my recent series of paintings to be visual playgrounds for the mind, stimulating curiousity and imagination. Like the confounding memory of an obscure but vivid dream. Allowing my mind to wander unrestricted, I let the subjects in these works drift freely from my thoughts and onto my canvases.
