Born April 8, 1942 Montreal Quebec. Graduated Montreal Arts and crafts, in Cabinet Making 1960. Received Maintenance Millwrighting papers. Dominion Engineering, Lachine Quebec. 1962.
I started carving and drawing at a early age, in Montreal and in a small hamlett called Cantic just south of Lacolle Quebec. As i got older i started working for a living and i did not have time to follow my passion any longer. Raising a family and working away from home also contributed to the lack of time.
Now that i have gotten older, and the demands of work and family are not as great, i have returned to my passion. I started to paint again in 2005 and also got involved with the Art Society of Strathcona County in Sherwood Park AB. and started showing my work.
My medium is soft chalk pastels, i enjoy working with this medium, because it is a challenge and the possibilities available to create all types of art , from Landscapes to Portraits are endless.
I draw my inspiration from the places i have been and seen through Canada and the USA. My favourites are Animals, Fictional characters, and Portraits and some Landscapes.
