I am very thankful to have received a Mid-Career Project Grant, from the Ontario Arts Council. Early in 2020, I started working with Queenie, a ceramic artist at clayArt Studios, to learn and create very thin 'card-like' porcelain pieces. I will produce many of these individual pieces, which will then become the 'building blocks' for [...]
Carving Kali It's always a fun and interesting challenge to carve animals. I'm particularly happy with the way that this Belgian Malinois, is taking shape. The breed is like a German Shepard, but much finer. I wanted to design this, so that all of the attention is on her.  This is a memorial piece. It [...]

I placed them around the spaces where the symposium was held, and allowed them to melt, as they do naturally. With this work, I always respond to [...]
This Giant wax heart was a commission, that I just couldn't make, in the end. This piece is made by layering layer upon layer of melted wax on top of itself, it is a rather labour-intensive process. I love the organic texture of the layers, as they they on top of each other. This piece [...]
I learned how to screen print. To make adult colouring pages, and greeting cards. My intricate drawings seemed to be very well suited to the adult colouring craze. This was a fun project, and it was great to learn screen printing. ... I have to say that my favourite part was the screens themselves.
