I am a 3rd generation artist, born in Duvernay, Laval, Quebec in 1958.
My grandfather, Richard Wenzel Pranke was an art professor in Slovakia, and my father,a well known Quebec artist Walter W. Pranke,
were my first motivators that inspired me at a very early age.
My art education began at the age of 10 when I created a 32 sq ft mural for a school project.
Because of my family's heritage in the love of
arts, I studied numerous art literatures, volumes of artists work and other forms of media to develop my skills.
Thanks to my father and my devotion to painting I continue to grow as an artist.
