“Things aren’t always as they appear to be. At first glance my paintings may make you smile but the true meaning lies just beneath The equality of all living beings is what inspires me. By giving a voice to the animals, I create narrative paintings that explore the delicate balance between humans and animals. With a little humour and a gentle nudge the message is delivered.” After graduating college a career as a graphic designer I studied Academic Painting in Italy. I’m represented in Canadian and American galleries and my paintings hang in collections worldwide.
