Profile

Born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, my education includes a B.A. Fine Art from Guelph University and Concordia University (1975), and I am an Honorary Graduate for the Victoria College of Art (1981).  I now reside in Victoria, BC where, as a freelance graphic designer and art director, my experience covers a broad spectrum of design disciplines. My interests include art consulting, heritage, architectural and exhibition design, book design and publishing.

Like many other 'creatives', I have been making a few paintings and taking a few photographs along the way throughout my career. I have now re-emerged to focus on personal projects including digital photography, cyanotype and book design. I also curate an online art gallery shop featuring the inspiring work of a creative community based on the West Coast.

I am an intuitive explorer of the natural world. Fascinated by colour, my process is primarily about following the light and exploring ways of seeing. Sometimes it is a quick response to a texture or graphic composition that captures my attention – finding something interesting in an everyday place. It is also about the convergence of more traditional painterly approaches with digital imagery. At this point I embrace the freedom to pursue several lines of inquiry and continue to build the portfolios you will find here on this website.
