I am a Canadian artist living in Nanaimo, but my studies have taken me around the world. Originally, my fine arts emphasis was in metal and kinetic sculpture. During the course of 24 years teaching a variety of three-dimensional visual art courses at Malaspina University College, my major emphasis has shifted to clay, particularly the excitement of raku, and stoneware fountains. I retired from the College in 1994, moving full-time into my existing studio.
I prefer to make large, one-of-a-kind vessels forms using a modified raku firing process. The fountains are really a part of my sculptural/technical background. Whenever there is time, I tend to revert to more sculptural elements in my work involving clay and metals. I exhibit widely and have my work in many private collections internationally.
