Tell us a bit about yourself
I have been an artist for over 40 years. Over that time period my journey has taken me through so many exciting and challenging adventures. It has allowed me to explore my inner world, that gets expressed in the outer world.
What inspires you?
Right now I am inspired by the changing urban environment of Toronto, where I presently live. It is a city that continues to transform into a vibrant collection of people and neighbourhoods.
The method behind the madness
I take photographs into my digital light room, where I apply my creative skills to transform the image into an artistic expression.
We'd love to get to know a bit more about you
I love travel, especially to South Africa where I am able to connect with a deep and spiritually rich environment and people. I love to explore the structure of a city and how those structures expand and contract, through mindful walking. Vegetarian for over 40 years. Being a grandfather!!!!!
Tell us a story
My earliest mentor was Fredrick Hagan, Head of Printmaking, from the Ontario College of Art. For some reason he took me under his wing in the printmaking department and encouraged me to open myself to what he saw as artistic ability.
