I am a Toronto born visual fine artist that has lived in Mississauga for over 30 years. I have a life-long passion for the centuries old technique of Chinese brush painting as well as mixed media, while honouring my own Canadian culture. In both my art and life, I work toward a cohesive and respectful collaboration among cultures.
I have been fortunate to exhibit in Beizhen (city of the Emperor’s Summer Palace) and Nantong (Shanghai) China where some of my works remain in permanent and private collection. My art is also in permanent and private collections in Africa, the USA and Canada. I am currently working on new pieces for 2021. Watch my Gallery for new additions.
