I have been an aspiring artist for as long as I can remember, intrigued by different materials and mediums but especially glass. Mentored by Johannes Schrieder, Germany and Gundar Robez at the Ontario College of Art I started my experimentation in fusing and later lampworking glass. My first works of tableware and other gift items were featured at the AGO, the National Art Gallery, the Vancouver Art Gallery and other gallery gift shops across Canada and the US. Today I focus on sculpture, Christmas ornaments, jewellery and repurposed-material glass chimes. I am also an installation artist working in photography, video and sculpture showing at OCADU, the Clay and Glass Gallery, the Stratford Art Gallery, the Homer Watson Art Gallery and the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. Most recently I am creating public art, Urban Forest for First Capital Realty at the Shops of Oakville South Mall 2016 and Wiidosendiqag, Walking Together Tour, Owen Sound ON, 2017 featuring five sculptures and 25 audio stories.
