My heart rests

And does strive

To be the best

This world can’t hide

Celebrate the beauty 

That is you

Celebrate it

Through and through

  For many years after graduating from the Ontario College of Art my career was in Advertising. I was employed by publishers, printers, and ad agencies as well as being an in-house artist at a select set of businesses. I enjoyed working as a designer and illustrator, but as my career advanced, drawing slowly faded from the forefront, my focus being a steady paycheque. Some employers really had no idea that I could paint or for that matter, even draw!

  On vacation one summer, I decided to see if freelancing could be an option. Maybe get to do the kind of art I loved. I acquired a few projects, quit my full-time position and another phase of my life had begun.

Slowly the work went from assembly and design to illustration, to commissioned pet portraits. Once again I was drawing and painting animals as I had done as a child. The kind of work that’s not really work but an extension of myself and a most rewarding experience. Ever changing, evolving into something of great love and fulfillment.

Come, Join me on my ‘Journey of Creating’
