I am a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design University and the Transpersonal Therapy Centre, both located in Toronto, Canada. I work full-time as a fine artist and psychotherapist from my home in Ajax, Ontario. I have had 33 solo art exhibitions and been involved in more than 70 group shows. I teach art to three levels of children and two adult classes at a local recreation centre, in projects as an artist in the school at regional public schools as well as adult art workshops. I have been meditating daily for the past eighteen years and have attended a half dozen silent meditation retreats.
