About

I am originally from Vancouver and after many years of living and working in the Yukon returned to that city to study art while raising a family. I received my diploma from the Vancouver School of Art – now Emily Carr University of Art + Design – in the early 1970′s, and after further sculpture studies under Jack Harman, graduated with honours in bronze casting in 1975. While I have made smaller works, my interest has always been in large scale, interactive sculptures and I have explored this most extensively in my public art commissions. I enjoy the challenge of making public art – from the historic research of site, to engineering problem solving, to the knowledgeable and enthusiastic specialists I work alongside during the long creative process.

In 1989 I was fortunate to spend time again in the North, this time travelling to Resolute in Canada’s high arctic to make my art. This was a significant experience in my life and career, and the memory of that landscape and human relation to it has stayed with me ever since. I currently live and work in Vancouver, near to the ocean and a different kind of inspiring natural and urban expanse.
