Following my BFA, University of Western ON, I graduated in Engineering Science in 1990 and became a Professional Engineer. My interest in ‘glass’ took me to Urban Glass, NY; Penland School of Crafts, NC, learning glass casting; and further studies at Pilchuck Glass School, WA, USA.

Artist Statement

I was always a builder of things. I love objects, travel and history. Through my travels and learning about cultures including different art forms, including glass art, art and design and mostly, sculpture I began to sculpt with mixed media a variety of experimental pieces. During this exploration, I discovered glass as a medium and began casting. This led to 30 years of styles and new art forms to share with the world. Enjoy and explore along with me.
