You bring to your art who you are with all the accompanying pleasures and vicissitudes in life together with one’s influences.  Here in Toronto while making art I have assayed meaning and connections while looking to themes on culture, people, populations, war, the poverty of neglect, sorrows and the places and times of solace, and nature.  My painting, as it is often with visual artists, is about the play and study of colour, composition, materials, and form, working with the moods of abstraction primarily but I will also look to realism in response to portraiture or to narrative.  Recent watercolours have examined landscape and light.  The sculpture has refered to the organic and the natural world as seen through abstraction.  I’ve been lucky to practise art  which I have shared with my family and acquaintances, with those who attend shows, those who purchase or accept gifts, and those who find it online.   I thank you all for your attention and observations.
