I am a full-time dedicated artist and a life long resident of Long Branch, in southwest Toronto, where I continue to reside.
My works have been displayed in various galleries and art exhibitions in the Toronto area including: the Heritage Art Gallery, Toronto; Toronto and Vancouver Molson Indy auto races, 2002; juried CASY art exhibition in Caledon East, Ontario, 2003; Invitational art exhibition and sale at the Kingsway-Lambton United Church, Toronto, 2005; 15th annual juried art exhibition “Through the Eyes of the Artist”, Lakeshore Arts, Toronto, 2008. I was a participant in Elemental, an invitational art show at the Assembly Hall in Etobicoke, 2008, which represented nature’s elements. I recently won the 2008 banner competition for the Mimico Business Improvement Association, which banner is now on display along Lakeshore Boulevard West until Spring 2009. In addition, I have organized my own art exhibitions and local artist group exhibitions including a recent exhibition at Westburn Manor, Etobicoke. I am currently involved in upcoming art initiatives in community improvement for Etobicoke and west Toronto including tree carving and mural painting as well as park sculptures.
