About

My process starts with an engaging idea about internal or external nature, which I explore through a series of acrylic paintings. I have been exhibiting and selling my paintings at one-person and group exhibitions for 30 years, in Canada (Montreal, Toronto, and now Bear River, NS), the USA (Nashville and Cookeville), and most recently in Sri Lanka (Galle Fort and Colombo).
