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 artistic history and images.
In 1978 Hart Massey and John Flanders were traveling across Canada visiting artist studios. They visited me at 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 have 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 of a beautiful Fushia from my garden then and now.
