About the Artist

 Allen

Ultrasound images confirm that I began (finger) painting while still in my mother's womb.

No?

Well, OK, but I have always enjoyed painting throughout my life. However I had little time for it while I was pursuing a career in the corporate world.  Now that I have retired from that, I have turned my attention to art in a significant way.  In fact, I would say that art consumes me now with the same intensity as my earlier career pursuits.

I am currently the Past President of and a Director of the Markham Group of Artists.

I have studied at the Varley Art Gallery, Haliburton School of the Arts, and with the Markham Group of Artists.  My art has been influenced by the teachings of artists like Andrew Hamilton, Brian Smith, Neville Clarke, Jay Dampf, and D.D. Gadjanski.
