I am a graduate of the Communications and Design program at the Ontario College of Art (OCAD), and I have become an accomplished and highly prolific abstract artist. Born in Toronto, Canada I am fortunate to be part of a multi-cultural and evolving society.  My inspirations derive from the way that I perceive colour and motion.

 

While my style is constantly evolving, there remains a vibrancy, optimism and connection to artistic influences. My formal training in fine art and art history serves as the backdrop to my creations. In my work, one can see the stylistic influences of some of my artistic role models including Pollock, Miro, Rothko, Haring and Bush.

 

My artistic strength derives from my ability to transform complex imagery into colourful, textured creations. Over the years, buyers and collectors of my work have been drawn to these free flowing designs that have come to represent my signature style.

 

Over the past 30 years my work has been displayed throughout the world in both private and corporate collections. I am hopeful that you will find comfort and inspiration in my paintings.

 

In this year’s collection, I have created images of time and space. This takes the form of designs based on carefully constructed grids of flowing colours and shapes that allows for a unique and highly personal interpretation by the viewer.
