Formal study has focused on development of from the wrist up artistic intuition and includes a BA in Religious Studies and Art History from McMaster University, and a diploma from the Anna Wise Institute, San Francisco in Biofeedback Meditation.  Extensive travel, from prehistoric sacred sites of the East, to contemporary museums of the West, is an ongoing foundational pedagogy.

Tell us 3 interesting or unusual facts about the way in which you work 

I  have painted abstract expressive works: 1. Hanging from a harness above the canvas 2. Throwing paint from a bucket standing 15 feet above the canvas 3. Doing a live performance in front of 500 people...the painting was started and finished while the audience watched and then it was auctioned off to the highest bidder... what a night!!
