For over 25 years, I have had a dual career – as a professional accountant (CPA, CMA) working in the automobile industry, and as an artist – first working in watercolour and pastel, and more recently in oil on canvas and oil and acrylic on paper. I also work in sculpture and mixed media. I now work full time on my art.
I am mostly inspired by landscape. By the landscape of the North – Northern Quebec, Northern British Columbia, Iceland, Ireland, Scotland. By the big sky. By the sea.
Over the years, I have studied with a number of artists at their studio and at various art schools, including attending a pastel master class with American artist Wolf Kahn at the National Academy in New York City. I was granted art residencies in 2015 and 2019, part of the Cill Rialaig Project, in Co. Kerry, Ireland.
I volunteer on a number of Boards of not-for-profit organizations, in social justice and in the art world. I am a member of Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, an artist-run gallery in Toronto, the Al Green Sculpture Studio and School, BRAVO-Art (a grouping of Ontario francophone artists), and Le Labo Media Arts Centre
I have participated in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Montréal, and New York. My work can be found in private collections in Canada, the US, and Europe.
Originally from Montréal, I now live and work in Toronto.
Where to find my work
