My art springs from a life-long exploration of the human psyche, as an actor, as a psychotherapist, and as an artist.
I use painting as a pathway to the soul - illuminating mystery, exploring the unseen, capturing the eros and beauty of the natural world.
My medium is primarily acrylic. I like it for its quick response. My style has been described as loose, raw, playful, energetic, whimsical. I paint what I feel as a manifestation of my spontaneity in the moment. I have lived in the mountains of Mexico, by the water in Prince Edward County and currently in urban Toronto. My work responds to the pulse of those environments.
