Born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario in 1949, this ethnically diverse
community along with his french upbringing formed his early aesthetics.
Neighbors originating from all across Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles displayed their unique cultural traditions through language, dress, cooking and art introducing him to the vast world of cultural diversity. This initiated an early interest in art and eventually lead him to enrol in 1969 in Communications Arts at Conestoga College of Applied Arts and Technology.
He graduated in 1972 and pursued a career in Graphic Design providing creative solutions to visual communication and marketing requirements
for publishers, printers, design studios and advertising agencies.
While progressively advancing in creative and management roles serving private industry and the Federal Government of Canada he continued honing his skills sketching and painting privately. He started showing his artwork
in 1979 at juried art shows, art galleries and solo shows.
Since painting full time he has produced a body of work critically accepted
by juries of his peers and generously supported by the public. His artwork
has occasionally won awards for excellence and popularity, been featured
in magazine articles and chosen for corporate and diplomatic gifts. He now
lives and works in Prince Edward County
