Randy was born in 1961 in Twillingate, Newfoundland. During his early teen years he moved with his family to Toronto, Ontario. After several years of living and working in Toronto, he met and married his wife Tracey. They eventually moved back to Newfoundland with their two children.
Randy can always remember being able to draw, even as a child, but he didn't really take his ability seriously until years later. Being entirely self-taught, Randy has taken many years developing and refining his technique and style. His inspiration is found in his own family life and in the picturesque place where he lives. Both play a very important part in his work and are evident in many of his drawings and paintings.
He has interest in a wide variety of subject matter including people, wildlife, scenery, and portraits. Randy's work has been exhibited in several solo and group shows, and on many occasions he has supported special charitable organizations by donating his work for sale or auction. His work can be found in many private collections across Canada and around the world. Randy now lives and works in Carter's Cove, Newfoundland , where he shares his love for life, art, music, and nature with his family.
