“The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work, he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It’s the artist’s responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation.”
― Patti Smith, Just Kids
Since graduating art school in Calgary in 1987. I have worked to develop my skills in representational painting and drawing which are the only mediums I work in. Portraiture is a large component of my studio practice but not the only one as I enjoy most genres of painting.
I enjoy a very quiet life devoted to art and study on the outskirts of Calgary where I work at home in my basement studio.
