I started painting for fun many years ago and took lessons from a local professional artist in the Kitchener - Waterloo area but my home now is in Ontario's beautiful City of Kawartha Lakes.

My favourite subjects are landscapes in general and lakes and mountains in particular. I try to create colourful pictures with a lot of depth and contrast

My favourite medium until recently has been acrylics, but now I use both acrylics and oils, with an increasing use of oils on canvas

I have enjoyed teaching oil painting art classes to grade 8 classes at a local school over the past 3 years - my favourite part is seeing the faces of so many kids who are able to create results that they never thought they could achieve.

I use photographs I have taken and other pictures as my main source of inspiration for my art.

There are a few examples of my art attached but you can see more by taking a look at my website
