I paint from the heart whatever images captivate me.
I love the flow and dance of oil paints, in their many-jewelled colours. I have been painting for 25 years.
Currently I work as a volunteer Docent at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, when I am not at the studio painting, or at the waterfront outdoors playing with my new plein-air easel or taking art courses or working on this site, of which I am the curator.
In 2012, I exhibited work in group shows at the Hamilton Conservatory of the Arts, the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology, the You Me Gallery - December show and the online Superauction for the Art Gallery of Hamilton. This year, one of my classical realism paintings was accepted in the Burlington Arts Centre auction, another at the Dundas Valley School of Art auction.
My work has been exhibited and reviewed at the Burlington Art Centre – Main Gallery, Dofasco Gallery (DVSA), Nubian Gallery, Sunset Gallery, Gallery on Five and Transit Gallery. My second solo show “Domestic Intimacy” at the Sunrise Gallery (Feb 2007) was followed by a group show “Observation and Sensation” at the Arta Gallery in the Distillery District, Toronto. I was one of “Five Painters” at the You Me Gallery, Hamilton in 2009.
