BiographyRaised in Fonthill, Ontario Canada, the earliest drawing I remember doing was of a rc turbo racer from a toys r' us magazine. I was six and have kept going since then. Going to art school was an easy decision, there was nothing else i could decide on or could even think of. After finishing three years at Fanshawe College I moved on to Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Inbetween that time have been doing some art for people, restaurants and bars. After completing University headed out to Wuhan, China for ten months and currently reside in Ulsan Korea. Paint as much as I can on any free moment.

Hi Herns, your temples are beautiful. You did a nice job. And your abstracts have a very organic feel to them.


very nice work, best wishes - ranjan




That's what is nice about doing digital work I can add words and take them away or change them according to customer needs. My art is focused to the average person and they have expressed the need to understand by having the works titled, so I started doing and got an overwhelming positive response and kept them on. They are suppose to remind and encourage the customer in their beliefs. I have some displayed in my house and they are quite comforting.


Mike: I've joined your world of artist friends. Thanks for the introduction. Love watching you post new works.


I love all of your artwork. I especially liked the Cambodia series. I see you do abstracts, I do too. Please visit my site.


Thanks for the visit. My mentor was Fortunato Depero. Anything an artist uses is just a tool whhether is is a brush, a chisel or a computer. They all are useful to create something beautiful. best regards, Robbie.
