“I have had the privilege of travelling by canoe into some of the rare remote areas of Canada. This has been a major influence on my choice of subject throughout my career. Tracing some of my ancestors in the gold rush days of the Yukon is reflected in my most recent works. If you’ve travelled the waters and crossed the portages you’ll find wood smoke in all my paintings.”

“I draw inspiration for my jewellery designs from life’s experiences, my travels, and the natural beauty of the world we live in. I particularly enjoy making jewellery that has an element of ‘play’ in the design, like my “champagne” rings with tiny bubbles that ‘lift’ off the surface in a gem-like effect. I use my natural curiosity when creating my designs, exploring ways to use the metals to create a visual sensation, perhaps one of delicacy, softness or fluidity. By using distinct shapes, capturing or reflecting light, adding textures or finding novel ways to blend gemstones and design elements into my pieces, I hope to evoke an emotional response when people see or wear my jewellery. “

The composition borrows from the randomly scattered light plays I find in the city: the patterns, the juxtapositions, the blending, the subtly and the bright.

I use acrylic paint and routed wood to capture the images of the outports of Newfoundland and Labrador and the barns of Ontario. These solid structures become fragile as they are subjected to the elements of neglect, the environment and despair. My paintings hold onto the world that is lost or disappearing – sometimes in the blink of an eye.”

“My goal is to capture the landscape and express my feelings and emotions through oil painting. By employing a bold use of colour to highlight and heighten the visual impact of each painting – my loose, rapidly executed brushstrokes capture moment-by-moment impressions on the canvas. The act of painting becomes an extension of myself allowing me to concentrate on the content with authority and directness. It is both a pleasure as well as a necessity to me to able to extract from my daily life significant meanings which are translatable into paint.“

“My new studio sits on top of a hill with two larger windows overlooking swathes of rolling farmland and woods. The artwork I am presently making is in part my response to this ever-changing vista. The images are abstract, with references to the patterns of the fields, the gestures of grass under snow, the angled barns and forest lines. These pieces are sewn collages using remnants of old prints and monotypes combined with new.”

“My favourite subject matter is the Canadian landscape, especially when it includes old buildings. Since I love history, this content (which is fast disappearing in our time) is very appealing to me and I am moved to want to render my feelings in paint.”

“My objective as a potter is to find the balance between form, function and colour. I work within the discipline of cone 10 reduction fired porcelain as well as in the Raku process. The high fire reduction allows for richness in colour and depth in the glaze surface. The making of the objects requires precisioned discipline which I find meditative. The raku firing process is fast and immediate and has a playful aspect which I believe comes alive in the work.”

“Over the 40 years that I have worked with clay, my interests and inspiration has come from a variety of sources. Architecture, design, and the landscape have been constant references in my work. The process of making an object in clay also plays an important role in my work. I try not to disguise the object’s creation but leave enough visual information for the viewer to reconstruct its making. The making and structure become important aspects of the esthetic of the object. Recently I have been exploring surfaces, which are inspired by the rocks and lichen of the Canadian Shield.”
