Biography

IMG_0592

I am a mixed media artist living and working in the small community of Bear Cove, located on the approaches to Halifax Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Although I began my artistic career in the more conventional realm of painting and drawing, my work of the last 30 years has been focused upon textiles, with other media interjecting whenever and wherever it seemed desirable.

My academic background in biology and mathematics (at Dalhousie university and the University of Lancaster, U.K.) frequently influences my work, as does an earlier interest in,  and training in, the theatre (at University of Alberta in Edmonton). With a passion for line, colour, and story, my work continues to evolve, in parallel with ever changing enthusiasms and interest in social commentary.
