ABOUT ME | PORTFOLIO

As a fine artist and craftsman, I create original artworks - objet d'art, paintings, sculptures, unique lamps, and tapestries.

BIOGRAPHY

I have been a creative artist most of my life, mixing both commercial design and fine arts. For me, commercial design is applied art; Fine Art is the pure exploration of the aesthetic. Commercially I create retail interiors and unique displays. As a fine artist and craftsman, I create original artworks paintings, and tapestries.

ART EDUCATION

I studied art at the University of Ottawa in the 70's. I learned the practical side of art and design while working at the National Museums of Canada during the same years I was at University. Finally, the School of Hard Knocks has been an excellent teacher for the last 40 years!
