My paintings are in the permanent collection of the City of Toronto. I’ve also sold to corporations like the Royal Bank and Versa Services –and to hundreds of private buyers everywhere I’ve lived.
Mostly self-taught, I began with small watercolours, then moved on to bigger acrylics. My current focus is on collage. I use drywall compound, carpet scraps, cardboard -anything really – to create a 3D effect, then paint the results in colourful acrylics.
I’ve taken part in One of a Kind, Toronto City Hall annual art show, Beaches Arts & Craft Show, Elora Art in the Yard (and Plein Air) and I started the Bloor West Village Art Tour (which is still running.)

MY NEW WORK
Besides finding inspiration ice fishing huts, I occasionally undertake painting commissions. Here’s a large acrylic canvas I did in fall, 2021 for Miriam Foell, owner of Fergies, a popular food emporium in Fergus, Ontario.
I happen to live only three doors from Fergies. Thus, there was plenty of opportunity last summer to become familiar with the comings and goings of her customers.
And her little green delivery van is so photogenic, I had to include that in the scene!
