Born July 26th 1954 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
After graduating with a BFA in painting from Concordia University , Montreal, I opened Peter + Peter Studios in Montreal with my partner , Peter Borowsky supplying special props, models and mechanical effects to the film and TV industries for 30 years until we closed in 2007.
I then moved to the small town of Brome Lake Quebec and renovated an old garage into my home and studio with the goal of getting back to making art on a full time basis. Looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon the mailart network. I quickly became involved in this movement, turning out hundreds of postcard size collages each year.
A few years ago I resumed my more “serious” art making turning my extensive collection of vintage books, magazines and ephemera into collages.
I now divide my time between southern Quebec and the central highlands of Mexico.
