Drawing, Booth 401

I was born in 1957 in Toronto and raised in Brantford, Ontario.  I spent 2 years at York University before starting a family and working for 25 years in the print industry. Eventually I began to exhibit in local juried art shows. Starting afresh in Toronto with a new partner, I am now truly exploring my unique eye and sense of wonder and whimsy. My eyes are marked by a condition known as Anisometropia – where one eye is nearsighted and the other farsighted.  This physical trait allows me to see images that are out of conscious awareness for most people.  These images drive my curiosity to understand what I see, where things begin and end.
