About the Artist

Monte was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. Although his painting career was founded in London, Ontario, he presently works in a Kitchener home studio.

From the early sixties to the mid-nineties, Monte's grounding in graphics led to three decades as an art instructor. His formative training in art took place at the special arts course at H. B. Beal Secondary School, London, Ontario and studio workshops at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto.

Since 1962, Monte has shown his art in many private and public galleries and has work in many collections. After retirement in 1992, Monte has pursued a full-time career in art. His interests continue to vary in scope, from monumental murals to contemporary fibre art and computer-generated images.

"Over the years, I've been influenced by Christian beliefs and an intense interest in our natural environment. In the nineties, I explored the closeness between life and nature through textured, multi-media pieces."

"My works evolved into highly dimensional fibre art forms. These images welcomed the mysteries of form and space through the interplay of light and shadow on a surreal colour field. Amorphous shapes were now open to imaginative interpretation."

"At the same time that I was working in mixed media on canvas I have been exploring the wide scope of digital images. The majority of the digital compositions especially emphasize an interest in human forms and the world around us. The initial works expressed how our guardian angels protect us. The following pieces illustrate the young and old interacting within our environment."

"Creating mixed media forms or digital images is equally inspiring for me. Whether its acrylic paintings or computer prints, there are constant challenges in colour, composition and exploring new vistas."
