I am a Toronto based artist and art teacher. When I was a young person I acquired a degree in fine art with a main interest in sculpture. I trained in printmaking [intaglio, woodcut, lithography & silkscreen], painting, and drawing as well. I pursued theatre design [a passion of mine since high school] and architecture design later on. I have worked as an editorial illustrator, graphic artist, architectural detailer. Now I am teaching art to adults and youth in a number of art schools. I was raised in the country and the city and both are reflected in my work which tends to be in many places at once – realism or abstract, oil or acrylic.
Black Willows is a commissioned piece – oil on board.
Hustle is based on my impression of city life in the evening. The evening sky isn’t quite dark and the trees and buildings are vibrating with light.
