I worked in advertising for more years than I would like to remember, where I was a designer and freelance illustrator working and living in Mississauga.

In my travels through the years, sketching was an important part of my life. I love to paint on site whenever possible, both in watercolour and pen and ink.

I am a member of the Peel Watercolour Artists, Mississauga Watercolour Society, and Oakville Art Society. I have paintings in many private collections in Canada, USA, and Europe.

Some of my latest work has been on trips to The Channel Islands, Ireland, Italy and Spain. This year I will be going back to Spain, but I also plan to paint closer to home.

Painting and drawing are a passion that is difficult to explain, but I have to do it.
