  1. Tell us about the artwork you have in the VAM 2011 Juried Show. 

Descending night was about to fall on a cold autumn day and the wind was blowing offshore. The night cast a light upon the rocks exploding them in colour.

2. How and when did you first become interested in creating art?

As far as my memory goes, I was always drawing or creating something, even as a small child. I started to paint landscapes at six years of age and I sold my first work at eleven.

3. What do you think of the art scene in Mississauga? Where do you see it heading in the next ten years?

The Mississauga art scene is very progressive. It hope that VAM expands its programs to draw in more emerging artists that are trying to expand their careers in their senior years. A lot of talented people are getting involved in art in their later lives and I hope that more programs will be added to inspire them.

4. What advice would you give young people who want to become artists?

Young people should realize that a career in art is not an open door. It is a lot of work and learning. If they have the passion, they must be willing to learn and develop their craft. Getting your art exposed to the public is the number one priority.

5. What do you have lined up after the VAM Juried Show? For people interested in finding more of your artwork, do you have a website, blog, Twitter account or gallery?

I am a participant in The Artist Project and I will be involved with the juried exhibitions put on by the Ontario Society of Artists. I have my own web site
