Biography:
 

Born in Goa, India, I lived most of my life in Nairobi, Kenya.

An architect by profession, I practised in Nairobi, Mombasa and Arusha, Tanzania. In 1975 I immigrated to Canada with my wife and son and settled in Richmond, BC.

My passion for painting had its beginnings in my sketching and drawing activities in my school days, and later in the production of watercolour renderings of projects as an architectural student.

I started painting in 1996 in watercolours; in 1997 I became an Active Member of the Fedration of Canadian Artists and exhibited in 12 juried shows at the Federation Gallery. In 2000, I exhibited in the AIM for Arts juried show at Performance Works on Granville Island. I now paint mainly in acrylics.

The inspiration for my paintings come from photographs I have taken in East Africa, India and here in Vancouver. Several of my paintings are scenes trom "Stone Town" the World Heritage Site in Zanzibar which I visited in 1966 and 1980. My attention to precision and detail in my architectural work has influenced my painting style.
