Favela
Oil 30”H x 16”W
Having always delighted in discerning those features of my environment which make it particularly attractive to me, I gravitated toward design. For as long as I can remember, have been busy depicting my world as I see it, progressing from drawing as a young child to caricatures and cartooning during my school years, then to a hobby in figurative and abstract experimentation in acrylics as a hobby during my engineering career and eventually to my “second career” in oil painting. Although mainly self-taught, I have also benefited from fine art courses and numerous workshops.

Painting alongside artist colleagues, I strive to continually refine my skills in observing and interpreting the varied subjects which I choose.
While I feel more expressive painting natural landscapes, I enjoy capturing urban scenes with impact because this requires a range of perception that exceeds the traditional limits of composition, shape, light and color. My works are in collections across Canada, in the U.S.A., Europe and Australia.
