Light and colour always shaping life. Memorable images.
I have learned from so many teachers, artist friends, in clubs across Canada, UK, and Florida as well as the Artists at the Gibson in Alliston. Virtual shows, so available today, have helped me continue to learn and improve my painting skills.

Whether landscapes, seascapes, people or animals, I love to draw, and paint. "Love Life and art." The medium I paint with most is acrylic. Other mediums such as pastel and watercolour I also enjoy.

I have had the honour of being accepted into many juried shows in Canada and the USA. I have won people's choice a number of times and sold my paintings in Canada, the USA, and England. A highlight was a sale from an entry in a juried show in Venice Florida.

My works are "memorable images" of special places and times. That is the key to all my paintings, "if it is memorable" I reproduce it in some form eventually.
