Essentials in Landscape Painting
I am a professional artist who has enjoyed a creative career spanning over 40 years.
Being employed as an illustrator and later art director provided valuable experience and opportunity to develop my skills as an artist.
Most of my working career was spent creating paintings and designs for greetings cards, calendars, and a wide variety of products for the retail market for Hallmark Cards Canada.
I am an artist inspired by great art, artists, loved ones, the everchanging seasons, landscape, and endless life subjects.
As a plein air artist, the challenge of plein air painting is especially gratifying as I paint my admiration and reverence for the magnificent beauty of every season designed by the Creator’s hand. I usually work in oils and acrylics for plein air and studio work.
I constantly work to further develop my character, my faith and my skills to be the artist and person who will inspire others.
