My background in art, extending over many decades, includes a long and rewarding architectural practice, a BFA degree in drawing and printmaking and years spent producing raku fired ceramic wall pieces.
The first solo show of my drawings was in 1962. Throughout my years in architectural practice I exhibited drawings and prints in commercial galleries. From 1990 until 2007 I produced raku fired ceramics. In 2007 I was one of 32 representatives of Canadian craft at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Since 2007 I have focused on drawing in pastel and graphite on paper and most recently in oil stick on terra skin surface.
Interest in clay continues in the mural format. The murals are individual projects and information is provided by appointment.
My work has been included in many group and solo shows across Canada. It is also part of art gallery, corporation and private collections.
“The focus of my art is the landscape. The sense of light and space in the prairie environment is a significant part in my imagery.”
“Working in pastel appeals to me. It allows the spontaneity and intensity of color that suits my way of working.
