I am a painter who has lived and worked in Toronto for most of my professional life.  I attended York University and graduated with a double major in Art History and English. While studying for my undergraduate degree, I took additional courses in drawing, painting and print making.  After graduating from York, I attended the Ontario College of Art and Design where I studied graphic design and communications.  I have worked in advertising as an art director, in book illustration and design, and I am currently pursuing fine art. I have participated in group and one-man shows in around the Toronto area.
