I talk about my successful show at Gallery 1313 in Toronto
My interest in becoming an artist began when I was around the age of 8. I was lounging one day on my bedroom floor while reading a Spider-Man comic. I was fascinated by the drawings of Spider-Man and the other characters. I decided to try my hand at drawing the characters. I was quite pleased with the outcome. I remember showing my sister. She said it was a good job. This encouragement was great. I kept drawing until the age of 36 and then took that to painting. I created a piece with a line of crows on a wire, posted it on Facebook, and it sold. I have never looked back since and I am fortunate to enjoy a very fruitful and lovely art career. I enjoy painting crows, boat scenes, landscapes, figures, and other subjects which peak my interest. I am self-taught with influences being Francis Bacon, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul Gaugin and W. Joe Innis.
