"Paintings of cityscapes and illuminated landscapes at night."
I am an artist who lives and works in Montreal, Canada. I received my Diploma in Fine Arts in 1986 from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver B.C and his M.F.A in 1993 from Concordia University in Montreal. I was the Eastern Canada winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition in 2002 and his paintings are included in many international public, corporate and private collections. I have exhibited in Canada, France and the U.S. and is currently represented by Herringer Kiss Gallery in Calgary, Alberta and Mark Moore Fine Arts in Los Angeles.

With my paintings I explore the luminosity and ethereality of illuminated landscapes and light phenomena by depicting atmospheres, cityscapes and architectures that are composed of many small lights and luminous forms. To me, these networks of lights and luminous forms resemble living organisms.
In some of my paintings I depict illuminated landscapes that represent humanity’s presence on the landscape. To me, these landscapes resemble vast living organisms, with networks of electric light evoking nervous systems. I find it fascinating how each nervous system of electric light is ultimately a manifestation of human habitation - these are landscapes that are literally electrified by human habitation.
