Iâ€™m an artist, an athlete, an outdoorsman, an animal lover, a loyalist, a Canadian.
Iâ€™m a skier, a raver, a bodybuilder, a cyclist, a tree hugger, a happy camper.
Iâ€™ve been called a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal by multiple woman. Iâ€™m a gentleman.
I'm a graduate of The University of Western Ontario. I have a degree in Fine Arts.
I admire Diego Velazquez, Andy Warhol and the Great Vincent van Gogh. I respect Velazquez. I love and hate Andy. I have a kinship with Vincent. I look up to Rembrandt, Michael Snow, Yves Klein, Franz Kline, Claude Monet, Mark Rothko, Lawren Harris, Tom Thomson, Emily Carr and the Group of 7.
Iâ€™m from Kingston, Canada. Home is U.W.O.. Home is The Zoo. Home is Toronto. Home is Shambhala. Home is Fernie. Home is British Columbia. Home is Canada.
I create art about what I love. I love Canada. I love the life that has been given to me by my Grandparents when they immigrated here. I love our wildlife and the northern lights. I love colour. I am colourful, and live to be colourful. I can sit and look at the colours change in nature and be completely content.
All of the animals and landscapes depicted in my work I have seen and photographed myself.
I create paintings and 3D mixed media artworks of Canadian animals in addition to landscapes, as well as abstract explorations of colour.
