Dave was born in Trenton, Ontario in 1962 and grew up in Montreal, Prince Edward Island and Winnipeg. He graduated from the Advertising Art Program at Red River College, Winnipeg in 1984 and is currently employed as a Creative Director.
Dave has combined his experience as a graphic designer with his artistic objectives. “My artistic objectives are to give the viewer an honest glimpse into what I see. I do not paint or draw from photographs or from memory - I trust neither. The best way to put the viewer in my place is to give that viewer the purest line from the subject to the artwork. That line starts with the light to the subject, from the subject to my eyes and from myself to the medium.”
