I must thank my Mother for enrolling me into evening oil painting lessons at the age of seven because art has been an integral part of my life ever since. I have taken my many years of experience as a successful landscape artist, and incorporated that knowledge into my Stained & Fusion Glass pieces. I would also like to send thanks to The Cape Breton Center for Arts and Crafts for all their support and guidance, as well as the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia for representing me in their gallery shop.
The thing that I enjoy most about Fusion Glass is the fact that there are so many avenues to explore. At present, my creations consist of glass and metals for example: copper, aluminum, gold, silver and brass. I use metal to create beautiful Cape Breton landscapes.
I have created many corporate and residential works combining fusion and stained glass; for example techniques for front entrance kitchen accents, picture windows, room dividers and wall & window hanging. also functional pieces like vases, lamps, soap dishes, plates, bowls, tea-light shades.
Are you looking for something unique or custom?
If you dream it we can create it. Bring us your ideas and I can involve you in the creative process. The final product is a truly unique work of art.
My journey in the arts began with charcoal sketches then moved on to painting in oils to becoming proficient in watercolor and acrylic mediums. I've been resident artist at the Kor Gallery located in Kitchener, Ontario and I thoroughly enjoy sharing the passion of my art through teaching others. I have been working with glass for over 30 Years and although I find the glass technically challenging, it is also very rewarding when everything works.
