About Me

As a teenager I wanted to be an artist. At the time, it was considered to be a poor career choice. So instead I studied finance and management to be an Insurance and Mutual Fund Broker. As a hobby, I learned and then taught choreographed ballroom for 25 years.

Since I retired, I've been able to more fully realize my artistic passion.

I am currently a resident of Pierrefonds, Montreal. I have taken many public lessons in Fine Arts and Contemporary Art. I have studied privately with several renowned artists, and have exhibited my paintings locally. My main focus is to portray the beauty or nostalgia that I see, and to always present my own positive perception of life.

I enjoy painting landscapes, animals and still life, but what I love to paint most of all is portraits, in oil.
