Born and raised in Quebec, Canada, I reconnected with my artist roots in 1996 when I started studying drawing and painting with Micheline Raymond. I graduated from her school in 1999. An artist of 40 years, Micheline founded the CreativArt Gallery and School in Montreal, Canada.
Since 2000, I have had the chance to study with several great local artists, namely Don Demers, Charles Movalli, Dale Radcliff, Charles Sovek, Tom Gill, and many others. Studying with each of them broadened my skills in different ways and kept me evolving as an artist. Already a colorist myself, I have learned how to push each color further, adding more contrast and creating paintings with a deeper impact. The result is a better sense of composition and harmony.
