Born and raised on a farm in Alberta, Dennis showed artistic talent in high school, but went on to college and was consumed by music and the business world for 35 years, living in Edmonton, Kingston, Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver. His talent lay dormant until he started drawing and painting with a pent-up vengeance in 1998. Now retired from business and living in Vancouver, Dennis devotes his full time to the visual arts.
His current passion is oversized acrylic paintings of flowers. Dennis is an active member of Meninhats “en plein air” artist group, meeting with 5 other artists weekly to paint outdoors in the Vancouver area.
