The city is attractive to us because of the buildings, the streets, markets,
shops, restaurants and people.
I started to paint from my neighbourhood, but then I realized there was much
more to this city. It is marked on street names, carried by buildings and told by its
people .Toronto possesses a wealth of vitality, colour and variety. From the
bustle of Kensington market and Chinatown to the Greek stores of Danforth
Avenue or the cafes of Little Italy.East and west, pomp and simplicity, antique
and fashionable, the fantastic and everyday. I try to capture what I have seen
and loved as Toronto.
Neighbourhoods shifting and changing as the city moves forward with it's
people. We retain in our heart some pictures of this city as we know it. I would
like to keep the images as keepsakes of how we lived and perhaps pass them
to future generations.
