I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death...Leonardo da Vinci
about my art
Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye...it also includes the inner pictures of the soul...Edvard Munch
The process of making art and the challenge of creating something beautiful is what keeps me inspired. I begin with freely layering paint in an organic way by engrossing myself in the physical activity of painting and trying to achieve a meditative state.
So I’m putting in layers of paint that at some point may represent the horizon, sky or whatever. The unpredictability is fascinating and I am often gleefully surprised when a touch of alchemy happens. As the layers build, I'm having this dialogue with the painting as to what color, shape, or line to add next. The work can go through many changes until I'm satisfied...as long as I ‘work through it’ till I reach that point, that's all that matters.
In the end, there must be an incomprehensible beauty, a touch of magic and wonder where the viewer can embrace their interpretation. If it connects with you and gives you joy then I have done my job.
If you are interested to know prices of any of my paintings, or would like a custom piece, please contact me by email or phone and I will get back to you within 48 hours
I am based in Toronto Canada from May to November and Florida USA from November to May
