I was born in Vancouver, BC. I was employed mainly in the construction industry as a heavy equipment operator, truck driver and iron worker. My work experiences also included a stint in the logging industry in BC. My introduction into the world of painting came December of 2009 at the age of 36.
I was convinced that there was a hidden talent within me, after my mother in law gave me her oil paint and a stretched canvas for my birthday in December 2009. I never tried painting before and had no formal training at all. I continue to paint whenever I can, improving my skills and technique through the self teaching method. I also gain inspiration from the works of many other artists thoughout the World.
