There is nothing quite so powerful and intriguing as an insightful portrait and no more engaging experience for viewers than to see one. I do many kinds of paintings, but return to the portrait over and over. It is magical when colors and shapes reveal the truth and essence of someone’s humanity.
I chose the classical realist atelier route for the most sustained part of my training as a painter – 2 years at the Charles Cecil studio in Florence, Italy, followed by training with Irena Korosec, in Montreal. I have always been greatly moved by classical realist paintings and it is gratifying that I eventually found artists who helped me to take my work in that direction. I have exhibited in Canada, the U.S, and Europe.
I paint daily and am exited by what the world offers up as subject matter – so much beauty and energy, so much pure emotion.
