I consider myself an amateur painter, at least at this point until I have painted more than a hundred works. I have been painting since 2017 and plan to continue for many decades. I enjoy many diverse styles of painting. I advertise my paintings for sale on Kijiji and have started selling a few now and again. I believe painting is a life long endeavor that provides opportunity to learn and improve with each and every work I take on. I have also created a Pinterest account with all my paintings posted for viewing. I am inspired by many artists and am heavily influenced by studying their works and styles. When time doesn’t allow me to paint, I am viewing YouTube painting lessons or televised painting programs like Landscape Artist of the Year from Canada and UK and Portrait Artist of the Year from UK. I try to nurture young artists that attend Cambrian College in Animation and Media and Communication programs.
