Statement I am a surrealist painter and the subconscious has symbolic language which fascinates me - brings me into exploring the mysteries of the Universe. My paintings are different - one of a kind. My use of colour and design expresses a gift from the Creator.
I am fascinated by the symbolic language of the subconscious, the mystereies of the universe, and the Creator. My background is mainly classical; I am grateful to my mentor Dr. Arthur Lismer, ( a member of the famous Group of Seven) while I studied at the National Museuam of Fine Arts in Montreal, for his support and encouragement and for allowing my artistic expression free rein.
Each painting shown in my gallery is of another dimension. I see it with my "third eye" and translate it surrealistically. Each viewer may see in them something different; the mind is an ever changing landscape.
Education Completed Fine Arts studies at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University) in Montreal, Quebec. Completed course of studies at the Musieum of Fine Arts, Saidye Bronfman Centre in Montreal.
