DAVE . Bachelor Landscape Architecture, University of Toronto, over 28+ years residential landscape design & construction, store design, graphics, skilled in carpentry, masonry, use of wide ranging tools, equipment & materials. Offering design for the do-it-yourselfer, small phased landscapes, custom built site elements & consulting. Graphic designs for business & organizations are offered as an aside -logos, posters, menus, adverts, signage, t-shirts & the like, at prices comparable to the graphic arts firms.
In the way of artworks Dave is not only producing unique outdoor furniture, but also a wide array of acrylics, photographic arts, oils, sketches, encaustics, sculptures & mixed media creations. Dave specializes in robust colours & rustic/organic art styles, but is not limited to that.
From an early age Dave loved to draw wildlife pictures. Throughout public school days Dave continued trying out a number of different disciplines including clay and after winning the Gr.9 Art Award, gradually turned his attention to graphic arts designing T-shirts for sale at summer resorts in Muskoka. Through University days & beyond Landscape design & build completely took over. Though highly creative itself & requiring a wide range of materials use plus continued graphics in support, it has only been recently in conjunction with his daughter Robin that forays into fine art/visual arts have commenced - & definitely loving it!
For years Dave's been a workaholic of sorts, but now is striving for a better work-life balance; It's going to be largely 9-5pm, M-F with occasional meetings in the evenings & weekends as really necessary... Weekends are for family, sports & arts... very passionate!...
These days Dave is living in the moment with an intense focus on ART & designing uplifting spaces
