I was born in the city of St. John’s on the island of Newfoundland, Canada. I grew up on the shores of a lake and learned to swim at a very young age. All of my fondest memories always include water. If I have a first love it is mathematics. My fascination with numbers and calculation led me into the engineering program at Memorial University in Newfoundland. After two years of studying engineering, I left to attend the Alberta University of the Arts where I studied Visual Communications. After graduating, I got a job in advertising and went on to earn my living in corporate graphic design, including developing corporate identities for some of the largest corporations in Canada. Painting is the current love of my creative life.
My work has been accepted into a number of national and international juried shows and won many awards including Third Prize Winner for “International Artist” Magazine, People & Figures. My work has been featured in several publications and I have pieces in private and public collections across the United States, UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Paraguay.

I am an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA).
