“I illustrate themes which are important to me in a fantasy setting.”

I have been drawing and painting all my life.  In high school I was a math and science major so I went on to McMaster University in a science and math program.  After completing my first year I realized that I wanted to do was paint so I worked and took evening classes in art. My science background influences how I paint and teach.  My focus is on the use of art theories and experimentation.  This allows my students to paint what they wish to express, not my vision, as they learn.  Their variety in content and style inspires me but the greatest influence in the content of my art is life.
