The ARCHIVE page is a work in progress charting over forty-five years of my career as an artist. Over time I will be adding more of my art history and images.
In 1978 Hart Massey and John Flanders were traveling across Canada visiting artist studios. They visited me at a small, derelict second-floor studio...in the winter...with very little heat. Great conversations about craft ensued and as a result, they commissioned a stained glass window for the Massey Foundation and my work was published in the Craftsman's Way and on the cover of
The Book of Days.
In 2020 I created a new stained glass work for the exhibition, Making: a career in craft, for the Alberta Craft Council. This piece is inspired by the work I created for the Massey Foundation 42 years ago beautiful Fuchsia from my garden then and now.
