my influences range from neolithic to 19th century impressionist art on up to present day. you will see i have taken to the impressionist period and can see the influences in many pieces of my work. little incidents in just living an ordinary life spark a creative drive to a new painting or piece that emerges from that speck of inspiration. the past 4-5 years has been both a blossoming of output on a mooded commercial success. the critical acclaim spurs my creative drive to continuously push back the boundaries of my art.

i can not know where my art will take me but i do aspire to exhibit in places like toronto, montreal, vancouver as well as stepping out of canada to enter the international art world with a first stop to new york city. my ultimate goal is to become an internationally known artist.
