Currently residing by the sea in Grand Barachois, N.B. Canada, Born in Montreal, have also lived in Ottawa, Zurich and Porto Allegre, Brasil.

Spent too many years in various stages of numbness within the Public Service till I saw the light. Now make a living as a professional artist.

___________________________________


I believe that art is an argument that the artist is constantly having with himself and that art is found in the process of creation and not in the end result or product. The surface of the painting needs to reflect this argument, this tension that exists between artist and canvas. This is why the surface of a painting, the texture and form, the strokes and scratches are more important to me than the finished painting itself. The give and take of the paint, the layering on and the scratching off of paint, this is where the art is to be found. With no reference save for a preferred palette of colors and a huge amount of trust in instinct, the painting begins with a single stroke or splash of color. There are no rules, there can be no formula. 


I am currently exploring larger-format abstract pieces where form, colour and texture take precedence over the figurative. There is no meaning or moral which lies hidden in my art. I am concerned with painting things that are visually and emotionally exciting…eye-candy for the soul and the spirit. If anything, I would like to think that viewers are able to see the celebration of the impermanence or the transience of things as a recurring theme in my work.
