I am a WELL KNOWN, fully CREDENTIALED,experienced,professional AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE ARTIST/PAINTER, one of the ORIGINATORS OF MONTREAL STREET SCENE PAINTINGS,SINCE 1970 .UPON OBTAINING MY BFA FROM ECOLE DES BEAUX ARTS AND BACH OF EDUC. DEGREE FROM MCGILL, I have been painting, archiving, and documenting the shops,streets,stores,landmarks,and hockey games of Montreal for well over 40 years.
I paint my city, Montreal, and its people with great love and devotion. For me, Montreal is the celebrity, the Grande Dame. She is full of stories drama, intrique, pathos ,mystery and I honor her every mood with my paint on canvas and lively brush strokes. I find her stories challenging and intriguing at every turn. The everyday folks, the shoppers, the tourists, the children happily playing a game of hockey, these are among my favourite characters who dwell and populate my cityscapes. Our classic landmarks, both past and present often bring back memories among my collectors of a bygone era as I bring the past and present into focus through my work. Because I have been painting Montreal for almost over 40 years, many of the original shops and owners are now long gone. I feel privileged to have been able to capture some important bits of my citiy's history. The changing face of this dynamic city, with the turning of the seasons has given me a life-time of subject matter with new discoveries to be made at every corner. The colors and flavors of the city are depicted in my paintings of cafes, resto bars, mom and pop variety stores, specialty shops and famous bakeries and of course the many yummy eateries. I have painted so many wonderful and familiar places, some are gone, but never forgotten, like cherished old friends, they live on in my paintings, such as the many demolished landmark restaurants and movie theatres. And nothing is more romantic than the cobblestoned roads winding their way through Old Montreal where the magical caleche rides, and colorful crowds dot my urban cityscenes.
