I live in Toronto with my wife and two sons. I am a retired lawyer and when I am not fulfilling duties as a current board member for the Fort York Foundation, I am painting!
I began painting in watercolour, as a hobby, in April, 2017. I have taken courses, and continue to do so, with professional painter and printmaker, Brian Hoxha through the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto School of Art and the Toronto School Board.
My art focuses primarily on landscape and domestic scenes (our two family cats figure prominently!). I strive for realism that takes full advantage of the unique qualities and unanticipated surprises of the watercolour medium. For everyone entranced by watercolour - it’s all about the luminous light!
I typically work from my own reference photos taken around the city and beyond (e.g. the Beaches, Don Valley Brick Works, Lake Simcoe, Bruce Peninsula, Cape Cod, the Hamptons). Scenes from these locations have been well represented in public showings since 2019 at the Cabbagetown Art & Crafts exhibition, Riverdale ArtWalk, and at Toronto Watercolour Society and other local shows.
