About

My artistic style has evolved over the years from high realism to colorful painterly gestures. While my color palette and technique has been diverse, my artwork is distinct. Painterly brushstrokes, subtle movements and unusual angles are recurring themes. I insist on studying each subject I paint live. This helps me fully understand what I am painting and it’s background. It also creates a personal attachment to each artwork I create, as I am able to say ‘I’ve been there’, with each and every painting.

My commissioned and original artworks hang in homes throughout North America and I am proud to have longstanding relationships with my collectors. I started my artistic career over 16 years ago in Ontario, Canada. I relocated with my family to Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2013.
