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 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.
