With art studies in Montréal, Toronto and Honolulu, being an elected member of Sculptors Society of Canada, private commissions in Montréal and Toronto, gallery representation with works in Europe and North America, multiple group and solo shows in Chicago, Palm Springs, Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa, receiving exhibition grants, interviews in print, radio and television – it is a great honor to have had my work validated by peers and art collectors.

At a certain time in history, the bowler hat was widely worn by all segments of society blurring social classes. I have appropriated this image as a symbol of conformity and anonymity.
