My love of clay started over 40 years ago which prompted me to teach in the Art Department of Cambrian College. I was a member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Potters Association and have been involved with various art organizations. My sculptures have been exhibited at various galleries across Ontario.

Artist Statement

I love form – from the anthropomorphic abstractions of Henry Moore and essential forms of Constantin Brancusi to the soft, flowing beauty of Auguste Rodin’s La Danaide and his emotive Burghers of Calais.

If one considers a scale with Romantic on one end and Classical on the other, I tend to be more on the Romantic end. I love spontaneity and the emotive responses it can evoke. Although I plan my work to some extent, I would not continue unless there was room for spontaneity. As Brancusi once said:

“There are idiots who define my work as abstract; yet what they call abstract is what is most realistic. What is real is not the appearance, but the idea, the essence of things.”
