Having grown up in Quebec’s Eastern Townships and Ontario’s Rideau Lakes environment, woodlands and lake lands have been integral to my artistic sensitivity and development, and they continue to inform my artistic practice. An Art History degree at Concordia University, Montreal, awakened my interest in mythological iconography and the surrealist movement. A degree in Glass and Ceramics at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland, northern England, then led to my establishing my own studio practice, working with glass in its kiln glass form for over a decade. More recently, I completed an MA in Glass at the Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland. I have been a resident artist at Loretta Studios and Gallery in Ottawa for the past 7 years where I work and teach glass casting.
