I paint the tools of daily life jut-to-position to things of beauty.

I had the golden opportunity to apprentice at a commercial art studio where my fellow men were my teachers. I became a lettering artist and later a layout artist. I had a fantastic life, married a skier/sailor, two wonderful sons, with cats, dogs, snakes, mice and gerbils.
We built an attic studio on our Toronto house, three stories up on a hill above a park. In the winter wondrous winds whistled around the studio. Dogs with leads met in the park at nine o'clock; free dogs met at ten. I began to paint in 1981. Books and workshops were my teachers. Now I live and paint in The Blue Mountains.
