Graduate of the Montreal Museum School of Art and Design, studied painting, drawing, photography and animation.
Painting watercolour and egg tempera, painted scenes and figures; influence by the realist movement from the 1970’s .
I am working in oil painting mostly forests and figures stylizing and also experimenting with texture, cold wax and pallet knife techniques, combining many layers of transparent and opaque colours of mood and feeling, nature scenes and abstractions.
While drawing at the weekly life drawing sessions at Simply Drawing, I use hard pastels, opening up new possibilities with colour and free expression. I am working on a new series of oil paintings combining the figure in nature.
My graphic design career has spanned over many years working on many projects from books, illustration, packaging and labels, marketing design for corporations, hospitals and foundations, as well as print companies and individual clients.
