I live and work in Toronto, and have painted for many years; my artistic influences include (but are not limited to) Norval Morrisseau, Aubrey Beardsley, Mucha, Erte, Pauline Boty, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Tamara de Lempicka, Picasso, and many others.
While acrylic painting always been my first love for the crisp lines and brilliant colours that can be achieved with it, in more recently I have discovered the the ancient art of encaustic (wax) painting.
Abstract expressionism, pop art, art nouveau, psychedelia, silent film actresses, burlesque, bathing beauties, and vintage advertisements all factor into my work.
