Having grown up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and Ontario‚Äôs lake country, woodlands and lakes have always been integral to my artistic evolution and sensitivity, and now greatly inform my artistic practice. I began my arts education with a theoretical grounding by completing a BFA in Art History at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. After this foundation, I wanted a practical immersion in art, having discovered a passion for glass as a medium, so I pursued a degree in Glass and Ceramics at the National Glass Center in Sunderland, England. I then worked for five years from my studio in Nelson, British Columbia. I am now part of a collaborative art space “Loretta Studios and Gallery” in Ottawa, Ontario.
