Profile

I grew up in Winnipeg and now hang a hat in the Interlake area. With an I.T. career 
on the retirement shelf, I can now spend creative time with clay, photography, and glass.

I love working with clay and the idea of creating functional art that can be used every day such as mugs, bowls, and platters. Serving wholesome, delicious food on a beautiful platter seems to add to a meal's experience and tea just tastes better when it's in a handmade mug.  

Photography has been a passion for me. Sometimes, capturing an image is being completely in that moment and appreciating the subject, shapes and lines, colors, light… almost a meditative thing. Other times, capturing an image is being outside of that moment and seeing the story that it tells. And now and then, capturing an image is just a fun selfie. I love capturing images! In my mind’s eye, it happens many, many times each day. Occasionally I have my camera capturing those images, too.

I enjoy playing with the colours and textures of glass. I find it interesting to try and combine glass with other natural elements. It is a breathtaking moment when you hold a completed piece up to a sunny window for the first time.
