My semi-abstract arrangements explore light, colour and form and in a structural and spacial environment. Although geometric in appearance they are derived from the real world and incorporate architectural elements: roofs, eves, quoins and corners. I am contrasting reflected and absorbed light, sometimes the transmitted light of stained glass windows, exploring bright and dark spaces, the internal, the external, the steep and the flat. The relationship between dual panels is important, the rhythm and balance, and the synchronism or counterpoint that plays on the eye.
I am a Glass Caster from Canada. My work is inspired by patterns of connection between the natural and human worlds. Metaphors and surreal imagery lead to the development of my three-dimensional forms. In my practice I express themes of duality and transformation in a purposefully fluid way, with the use of Gaffer Crystal Glass. I have a BA in Art History from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, and a BFA in Glass and Ceramics from the University of Sunderland in the UK. I now work from my studio in Nelson, British Columbia
