Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

I fell in love with pencil at a very early age — first graphite, and then coloured pencil, which became and remains my favourite medium. I am also entirely self-taught, so I never started out with any notions that certain things couldn’t be done with pencils. Anything is possible with them, and they offer such control! At first I wasn’t aware of any books on the subject, so all my techniques have come not from how-to books but from trial and error, groping my way along, trying to emulate the wonderful effects I admired so much in great paintings. I still love looking at and learning from the masters of the past. Like them, I want to explore and share the emotions and experiences common to all of us. Art is not only for self-expression, it is for giving — I hope to give, through my work and through this wonderful Society.
