Born 1949, the youngest of 12, in Callander, Ontario, Canada. I came to Toronto in 1968 and joined Toronto Police as a civilian, retiring in 1999. Over those years and onward, I’ve written a number of poems and decided to share some of them, along with my art. As for my artwork, I never started painting, drawing or sketching until my later years. I do not consider myself to be an artist, nor a poet for that matter, just creatively inclined. I dabble in the arts - writing, painting, drawing, woodworking, singing, poetry; anything I set my mind to ... a jack of all trades, a master of none!
I started out writing my first book, relating to my poetry and my artwork, just for posterity, nothing more, but then I published a second book and now my third book ... refer to BOOK ORDERS tab for insight. I am now in the process of writing a 4th book, encompassing just my poetry.
Each day on this earth is a blessed day, a creative day - the ability to paint, to write, to sing, to share, is a gift, no matter how good or bad the end result might be.
