Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Fresh off my easel: Pond Jewels

Hi Everyone, I am happy to have finished my latest painting today: a water lilly scene with lots of blues and greens. It's a second version of my original Nymphaea Blue painting which is in my private collection. This time I did the painting on a square canvas and added another flower. I am going to be in two upcoming exhibitions and need quite a few new paintings so I will be revisiting some of my older pieces.

Tuscany Delights - zoom zoom

Hello Everyone, I am happy to announce that I entered in an agreement with an Italian Restaurant in Montreal to have my Tuscany Delights painting image on their pizza delivery cars!

They will put my name/website on the car to next to my image! It's some great advertising for me and my work! The car will be launched on May 14th. He will send me pictures and I will post them then.
