Artist Statements:

I think a Painter paints best what he thinks about the most.  For me that is objects and present surroundings.

I always thought of Kingston as the jewel that was unknown to the rest of Canada. It had that kind of character that builds over time…

I love Kingston…I resonate with it, I feel a rapport with it all…the old town…the building, the alleyways, the old churches…it’s the textures of the red brick and the limestone. Kingston has always had a quality that really appealed to me…not in a pretty sense. Like landscape…its beauty comes from its ruggedness, its power to face time, its colours and of course the water and the light…
