Artist's statement & trivia

Born: London Ontario Canada, 1960

 Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts (printmaking practicum), University of Western Ontario, 1983. Bachelor of Education, University of Western Ontario, 1984. Member: Gallery 96, Stratford. (C.V. available on request) 

Artists statement: When asked, I have described my work as emotive realism. I want my images to be visually accessible to the viewer so that my content is accessible. The great painter Wassilly Kandinsky stated that the form art takes is dependent on the epoch, the nationality and the personality of the artist. I feel the impact of these forces on my work. In addition to these forces, words have always held great sway with me and my works usually have a literal base for the contemplative messages I wish to convey. Our time and nation also impact on my works, we are a people in a state of uncertainty, in a time of flux. My work of the past few years explores my reaction to the world I live in and thoughts I have about it that I would like to share.
