Born in Toronto, I have a BCom, MBA and CFA all of which are completely irrelevant and have done little to stimulate the right side of my brain. Over many years I have pursued a number of creative endeavors but have kept coming back to painting which I have learned from books, by studying with a number of talented contemporary painters, and mostly by painting. 

 

What interests me most is the illusion of paining. The magic behind creating an image that appears realistic and three dimensional despite your brain knowing full well that it is simply dabs of pigment on a two dimensional surface. A fact that somehow your brain is content to ignore. I explore the inherent conflict when trying to convey an image that is inviting to the eye, drawing you into a complex scene despite it being rendered with simplicity, limited image detail, and bold loose brush strokes.  A methodical messiness that somehow is still balanced, all the while creating the illusion of an effortless process.

I have lived in Toronto, London and Tokyo but now happily reside in West Vancouver, British Columbia
