I am an instructor with an articulate and entertaining style of teaching art with the soul of a true artist. I bring thoughtful and colourful enthusiasm to the classroom discussion. My work hangs in many private and corporate collections.
I have a professional background in painting, photography and Graphic Art. I now focus my artistic talents on the finer points of painting as a teacher and lecturer. I have a steady following of students who praise his nurturing and encouragement in their artistic endeavours. I have developed the ability to condense the essence of the subject cleverly and simply, leaving the student’s imagination intact to fill in the details.
My emphasis is on painting, form and colour, keeping shapes simple. My purpose is to entertain the viewer and to create a mood or feeling about the subject matter. A painter of oils and watercolours, landscapes, florals and portraits, I love both mediums. "Watercolor is very spontaneous, it's exactly what it says, water and colour, and with that, it's easier to create that special mood." I believe there is always something new to learn and loves to see his students learn and take a chance with their painting.
