About Me:
Classical artist with both Fine Arts and Education degrees.
I have worked as an animator, (traditional and digital), matte painter and scenic artist for Hollywood features shot in Toronto.

I have taught Life Drawing and Airbrush Illustration in college for 5 years and been an airbrush artist for 25 years.

I love painting animal portraits and animating or illustrating anything that truly captures my imagination. I am especially concerned about social injustice and the plight of animals.

The day of reckoning is fast approaching i do believe and perhaps Art can save us.

These days I am trying to finish my historical novel that i started writing three years ago, a love story set against the backdrop of early 19th century British India.

I have also finished two screenplays...
