I have been making art since I was very young. Always encouraged by my Mom and an awesome art teacher back in grade school who was the best. Never disparaging but always encouraging to try anything and everything with many materials. This led me to try many art forms/mediums over the decades, many I still use to this day.

I am a marine engineer by trade and I became interested in glass & metal art over 40 years ago through fabricating and welding metal frames for other artists. Glass is always interesting. It’s never boring. A piece of glass always holds secrets that allow it to transform into an amazing light pictures or objects.

I am mainly self-taught but have had some formal training. I learn by watching the world around me and other artists. Experimenting is my best friend to get the unique pieces I make. I love experimenting. My art pieces are made from ideas from the many things I see in life and my imagination. I specialize in creating one-of-a-kind glass art, metal art and alcohol ink art.

I have my own studio in Aylmer, Ontario where I create artworks, teach and do commissions. I support local animal rescues, charities and the Legion Poppy fund. I have won a few ribbons and awards for my art and my absolute favorites are the awards I have won by being picked by my fellow artists:
