I paint with the highest professional Artist quality materials, mostly a Winsor & Newton oils and Unison Handmade Soft Pastels. It can take me weeks to complete a painting. I admire a mix of old and new painters, Van Gough, Rembrandt, Sargent, Bateman. I paint what I am drawn to, never knowing what it will be next. I love the ocean, boats, people, landscapes, seascapes. I have completed many commissions. I won the prestigious 2018 Best Portrait in Canada award from the Portrait Society of Canada.
