QUOTES FROM THE ARTIST ...

WORKING WITH HOCKEY'S GREATEST LEGENDS ..
.
          "It has been a true honor to have had the pleasure of working with many of Hockey's Greatest Legends, as well as numerous Historical figures during my career. It is hard to believe that over the last 20 years, I have worked with names such as Wayne Gretzky, Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Bobby Orr, Paul Henderson, Team Canada 1972, Johnny Bower, etc.
           I am asked many times, "What is my favorite painting or celebrity that I have worked with", and I can honestly say that it is impossible to choose a favorite painting, moment or experience when you have had the honor of working directly with so many incredible historical figures. Every one of the players and celebrities I have worked with were absolutely genuine, completely down to earth, and a pleasure to work with.
           It has always been an incredible privilege to me as an Artist is to have such Legendary figures sign and endorse my artwork, but the fact that they are proud to hang my artwork in their own homes and that they request Limited Edition prints to present to their friends and families - is the greatest compliment any Artist could ask for. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to develop relationships and to have had such wonderful experiences with so many talented individuals through my artwork."


WORKING WITH MAURICE RICHARD ...

          "It was an incredible honour and privilege to have had the opportunity to not only paint Maurice Richard, but to spend a few days with him during the private signings for both "For the Love of the Game" and "Tradition of Excellence".The chance to get to know this Canadian Legend is sure to be one the greatest highlights of my career. It was a very sad day when Maurice Richard passed away ... he was such a great hockey player and ambassador of the sport ... and such a nice man.
           Through this painting, I tried to capture his incredible intensity as well as the feel of this classic era in hockey history, when players played "For the Love of the Game". I chose to focus on creating an original dressing room scene featuring many different elements that portrayed the textures, equipment and even clothing of the time. It was important to focus on the old leather tube skates, wool jersey and wooden stick of the time - as well as adding the subtle background elements of the old fedora, dress shoes, shirts and tie.
           Presenting the final painting to Maurice for the first time was the highlight for me - especially his appreciation for the originality of the piece and his desire to present copies of the Limited Edition to his family and children. Sitting with Maurice Richard and discussing art, family, and hockey during the signing of the prints is a very special memory to me as an Artist."

WORKING WITH JOHNNY BOWER ...

          "Working extensively with Johnny Bower on a number of different projects over the past 20 years is undoubtedly one of the best experiences of my career. Not only is he one of the warmest and most caring people I have met in business, he is by far one of my favourite people anywhere. I sometimes forget how much of a Hockey legend he is, since my family and I consider him and his wife Nancy to be our very close friends. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with Johnny, and more so to be able to call him a friend. Truly an amazing man and incredible ambassador to the game of hockey !!"


WORKING WITH PAUL HENDERSON ... 

           "I tried to capture...the celebration, moments after what is arguably one of the greatest moments in Canadian sports history. I wanted to show both the jubilation of the winning - Team Canada, as well as the disappointment the Russian Team must have felt after a very long and hard fought series. I decided to also paint separate vignettes at the bottom of the piece to show Paul Henderson's incredible contribution and accomplishment of scoring the game winning goal in Games six, seven, and eight. I think sometimes people forget that Paul contributed far more than just the Series' winning goal.
           I am very proud to have been commissioned to create this Tribute to both Paul Henderson and Team Canada '72. Of all the pieces I have been fortunate enough to have worked on with Paul and the Team - this one was especially memorable as it was the first piece we did together. It was an honor to not only work with Paul, but to also have the opportunity to get to know this true Canadian hero and icon."


WORKING WITH TEAM CANADA 1972 ... 

          "I tried to capture... the pride and determination that these great players of Team Canada 72 must have felt while standing at the blue line for their country's national anthem. In the final game of what is now known as the greatest international hockey series in history, these players were not only playing for themselves, but for an entire nation. 
           I felt it was very important to capture not only the mood of that particular moment, but also the small details of that time, such as the amount of tape and the curve each player used on their stick as well as the mood and intensity in Russia shown by the military police presence in the crowd. The most satisfying part of this project for me, as the artist, was when the actual players and their wives commented on these small details and the fact that they felt their likenesses and emotions had been captured within this painting. 
           I am extremely proud to have been a part of this commemorative to one of the most important moments in Canadian sports history. To have had the opportunity to spend time with this incomparable collection of 35 Hockey Legends, as well as having them sign and endorse my work, is truly an honor."

WORKING WITH PHIL ESPOSITO ... 

           I tried to capture... this incredibly important moment in the '72 Summit Series, when Phil Esposito showed his true leadership skills as well his Canadian pride through his heartfelt and passionate speech after a disappointing loss in Game 4 in Vancouver. After being routinely booed during and after the game by the Canadian fans, Phil spoke his mind and not only rallied his Team with his speech but also rallied a Nation. The Speech was the turning point in the Series for Team Canada and it's fans.
           It was a pleasure working with Phil again on yet another project - he is always the consummate professional and a great ambassador to the game."


RESEARCH FOR THE VINTAGE HOCKEY COLLECTION ...

          "Through my relationship with the Hockey Hall of Fame and the many NHL Hockey Legends I have been fortunate enough to work with - I have had access to and have extensively researched through many Hockey artifact and archives collections. From those opportunities, I have used the vintage game-used gloves, skates, sticks, pucks, and Goalie equipment from numerous NHL legends as reference and inspiration for "The Vintage Hockey Collection" paintings - including actual Vintage game-used equipment worn and used by: Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe, Maurice Richard, Paul Hederson, Ken Dryden, Johnny Bower, Vladislav Tretiak, Tony Esposito, etc.
            I wanted to capture the the essence of the 1960's and 1970's era of hockey through detailed depictions of the classic leather gloves, skates, wooden hockey sticks, and equipment of the time. I have always been fascinated by the heritage and history of the sport, as well as the textures and feel of the old and worn equipment, and wanted to create a Series of paintings dedicated to this Classic Era in hockey. These paintings are truly reminiscent of my childhood hockey memories and I hope that they bring back many of the same nostalgic feelings to others.
