I am a native of Montreal, Quebec. I have been painting in both oils and watercolors in the United States and Canada since the 1980s. After studying at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1993.
I am fortunate to have lived in many beautiful places. For several years I lived in proximity to Acadia National Park, in Maine. My work was represented at the Blue Heron Studio in Bar Harbor. I now maintain a studio in Estes Park, where I live with my family. These places have made a strong impact on my work. I am drawn to the shapes and spaces found in nature. I strive to try to capture the light and colors of what I see at different times of the day and during the seasons of the year. My work is influenced and representative of the Impressionist school.
I have a deep affection for this part of the world and can often be found hiking the trails seeking inspiration for my work.
