I have been fascinated by the history and painting techniques of past eras. I use this style as a starting point to explore compositions which are not straight imitations of older styles but incorporate contemporary elements as well. I have used images of statues and architecture and incorporated them into modern settings. I have rendered historical figures; some prime ministers, famous personalities, and images from the cinema and theatre. I am a graduate of Fine Art from the University of Guelph and also studied privately with a notable artist. My work can be found in collections in Ontario, Detroit and Toledo.
