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 from my home in Ajax, Ontario. I have had 44 solo art exhibitions and been involved in more than 100 group shows. I teach art to three levels of children, two adult classes and 2 seniors classes at a local recreation centre as well as adult art workshops. I have been meditating daily for the past twenty-five years and have attended a half dozen silent meditation retreats.
