Born in Toronto, Lanny now resides in the picturesque fishing village
of Port Dover, Ontario.
His original business career directed him toward the corporate
world where he achieved highly measurable success in several executive
capacities with major Canadian companies. Tiring of the business
environment, in 1980 he began to take his potential art career far
more seriously. He commenced painting full time in 1982.
In a short period of time he has once again achieved highly measurable
success. Lanny's paintings now hang in private collections throughout
Canada, many parts of the United States and much of Europe, South
Africa, Mexico, all of the U.K. Brazil, Jamaica, Australia and Israel.
Lanny is a self taught artist who has experimented in every medium,
including sculpture and silk screen printing, but now concentrates
his efforts in oils, watercolours and acrylics, and in that order
of preference. He explains that "alternating within three media
is both a challenge and a pleasure." Although he is highly
recognized for his superb renderings of the human figure he paints
any subject from life that appeals to him. His realistic style,
with a touch of impressionism, tends to tell a story about the subject
His reputation as a Canadian artist of considerable and varied
skill continues to grow.
