For me painting isa visual language that ignites both my curiosity and imagination.As I see it there are no rules therefore I paint for the sheer joy of it. These versatile acrylic paintings are large bold fluid and full of energetic confidence. For a number of years I was a docent at both The Royal Ontario Museum and The Ontario Art Gallery. Many corporate collections include The Four Seasons, Baycrest Hospital, Equitable Trust, The board room of Queens Park and the lobby of the resorted ElginTheatre in Toronto. Paintings can also be found in private collections in Toronto, Montreal , Miami and Tel Aviv.
