I am the very proud father of 6 beautiful children and I have spent the past 30 years as a professional photographer in the film industry photographing hundreds of actors and celebrities.

My keen sense for the use of lighting and it's power to influence a person's mood and emotion inform my painting style.  

I describe my paintings as vibrant, high-energy and emotionally uplifting. 

My focus is on employing bold colour palettes and layering colours to create transparent and emotive mystical veils of light which often appear to illuminate the painting from within. The end results are visually arresting, dream-like paintings that ebb and flow and are in a constant state of motion.

My paintings are held in private collections in the United States, Iran, Europe and Canada and are available in Toronto through Arta Gallery, Petroff Gallery, Gallery133 & Sybil Frank Gallery.
