Artist’s comment...
    “What Mozart was to music, your son is to art!” so said the director, John Russell, of the Courtauld Institute of Fine Art (London) to my mother after he scrutinized my portfolio of sketches, drawings and paintings. This propitious event occurred during his exhibition at the CNE in 1937. I was nine years old.

    It seemed evident that I was possessed with an exceptional God-given talent. In the words of Rose Kennedy, “To those who have been given much, much is required.” I came to realize the deep significance of this statement the more I spiritually matured. It became obvious that I had an important job to do.

    The odds of succeeding as a painter are extremely high. There are no Lorenzo’s or Pope Julius' to cover your expenses while you hone your skills... The more formal education I was able to get, the greater flexibility I had in choosing a secondary income to subsidize my career. As most of us know, the creative process gallops ahead when we know that our bills are paid. For the exception of twenty years of painting and teaching in Rio de Janeiro, I continue to paint and present to the public my definition of the our Canadian identity. Terry Culbert of TV Global during an interview, described me as “One of Canada's best kept secrets”. In recalling my hectic life of celebrity in Rio, remaining a secret in this beautiful country may be a good thing.

    In my autumn years, I have come to realize that we have been put on this earth for a reason... In my case, it is to record with love all that is God-made. In the final reckoning, the artist is not so important... Instead, it is the work that counts... to be enjoyed by all for years to come.
