ABOUT THE ARTIST
Up until my retirement I had worked my entire adult life in the financial services industry. It wasn’t until I retired that I found my passion for painting. I had always been interested in art but with no formal training I had never even picked up a paintbrush until then. Since discovering this “passion”, I try to paint as often as possible and have discovered it brings me many happy hours of peace and relaxation.
I am currently a member of two art clubs: The Gallery Painting Group in London Ontario, which I joined in May 2016, and I am also a recent member of the Lambeth Art Association.
Since I started to paint, I have had the good fortune to attend numerous workshops and classes both locally and elsewhere that have assisted me in my craft. These opportunities have introduced me to some pretty fabulous and talented folks. As the saying goes – it has all been grist for the mill.
My approach to art is simple. Find a subject that interests and paint it. For the most part the subject is almost always the inspiration, but the paint colours and how they work on the canvas or paper is where the magic happens for me.
