I have always enjoyed visual art and cannot remember a time when I wasn’t sketching or doodling on a scrap of paper. Landscapes and Still life painted in traditional oils are my favourite subjects.
I am a member of the Oshawa and Pineridge Art Associations and for several years I studied under professional artist Doug Purdon as well as attended workshops at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto. In 2008 I enrolled as a student at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto to learn classical painting techniques initially taught in the 19th century ateliers in Florence Italy.
I am currently represented by Studio 737 Art Gallery on Hwy 7 north of Tweed and Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn. I live in Oshawa with my wife Jo Anne and paint on a full time basis.
