Contemporary Artist

Generally I am a self-taught artist. My art educational training comes from life experience. I have been art-making since grade school. So I have been an artist for the past 60 years; practicing as a professional artist since 1996. I have received numerous awards and participated in a large amount of art exhibitions both locally and internationally.

As an educational component to my website I share my story to encourage emerging artist. Art making has been a major activity in my life, in fact, I don’t remember a time that I wasn’t actively creating paintings.

Composition, colour and form come naturally to me. I paint intuitively often creating work as I go along. In my I paint images that have appeared in my dreams and meditations. The composition and colour are decided during the painting process itself.

I hope you enjoy my work!
