As promised, this will be a presentation of some work made as a result of the influences of my Vietnam and Cambodia trip. What follows are the steps I took to make the paintings… from initial drawing to collage, to pastel and oil paint.

Welcome

I have been a professional artist for over 30 years.  I am a figurative mixed media painter and printmaker but within this foundation is a quest for the psychodynamics of the work – the need to see beyond and yet, realize the moment and uncover the layers.  My subject matter ranges from still life, landscape,  theatre, and personalized interiors- I am deeply moved by color and light and form. You can visit my online portfolio and biography by clicking here. While my artistic adventures have taken me to so many exciting venues;  backstage as the unofficial artist of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, (2000 – 2010),  a solo show in Florence, Italy (2010), as an artist in residence at the Banff Centre (Leighton Colony),  (2011),   to Vietnam and Cambodia, (2012) and recently to India (2013), my heart remains where I live, in Montreal, Quebec.
