I've been called a Canadian post-Impressionist painter. I'm happy to accept that label. On this site, you will find a large selection of my work for sale as archival prints as well as original paintings.
Much of my output is of Ontario - the disappearing barns of Southern Ontario, scenes from the Near-North, waterways, small towns and urban places. My work also includes paintings done in Quebec, the Maritimes, USA, England, Paris, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Collectors have remarked on the evocative nature of my work. They talk about its simplicity and especially its striking colour. I often get people coming in to see my work telling me they find it joyful. For me, that's a success. I want my audience to feel the same thing I feel when I'm on location painting.
I mostly paint en plein air. That's French for in the open air. In other words, on location. (Everything arty sounds better in French or Italian. Just saying...) Being on-site when you paint gives your art far more life than working from photo sources in the studio, although I do paint in the studio as well.
I'm President of the Ontario Plein Air Society (OPAS). A recent success for me was being accepted in Plein Air Easton. It's the USA's most prestigious plein air competition. Only 58 artists out of the hundreds who apply are accepted.
I also run art workshops of my own as well as being an art instructor for hire. Have paint brushes, will travel. I end up teaching for various public organizations and art clubs as well as giving private lessons.
