Biography:
 I find I am drawn to subjects in which the quality of light creates a mood that is strongly evocative of time and place. In capturing the visual impact of my subjects, I focus on two distinct yet complementary aspects of light: the illumination of the atmosphere, which articulates depth, and the modelling of shapes, which reveals texture and detail. For me, the depiction of atmospheric depth, together with textured surfaces, recreates the sensations I experienced upon first observing my subjects, and allows me to share those sensations with viewers of my work. As a native of Vancouver, I have lived in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia for most of my life. My life-long interest in painting stems from my childhood in the 1960s, when I was tutored in various artistic techniques by my parents, who were graduates of the Vancouver School of Art. After graduating high school, I attended the University of British Columbia, obtaining my B.A. in political science. Over time, however, I discovered that, despite my commitment to a liberal arts education, I found myself being drawn back to my artistic roots. Accordingly, throughout the late 1970s and early '80s, I continued to nurture my creative impulses through filmmaking, photography and painting; I subsequently attended the Simon Fraser film program, and studied photo-journalism at Langara College. Determined to pursue a career in the visual arts, in 1987, I moved to Toronto, where I worked as the assistant editor of Photo Life magazine. While travelling to Toronto, I was struck by the vastness of the land, intrigued by the artistic possibilities of recording what I had seen. Subsequently, at Photo Life, I soon gained an enhanced appreciation of the characteristics of light, and the aesthetics of lighting effects. Until that point, I had been painting intermittently throughout my life, but it was my daily exposure to photographic art while at Photo Life together with the inspiration provided me by my move to Eastern-Central Canada that convinced me that my future lay in expressing my emotions and my observations of life through the medium of paint. Following further travels throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and the Caribbean, in 1994 I returned to Vancouver, where I began to paint full-time, resulting in a number of exhibitions of my work, and a continued commitment to developing a personal artistic style.
