I am thrilled to have received this honour at the 18e Gala d’excellence Les Culturiades on November 17 at Maison du citoyen, Gatineau, Quebec.



My work Match is on its way to be a finalist in this competition, prize winners are to be announced at the opening of the exhibition on December 1 at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre in Latvia.


I was honoured to participate in The Fusion Clay and Glass Show 2017 at Toronto’s Artscape Wychwood Barns October 13-15, and honoured to receive the Best in Clay prize.


Thank you to everyone who visited with me at the 25th anniversary of The New Art Festival in the Glebe, Ottawa on June 10-11 to talk about my latest projects, discoveries, and adventures in ceramics.

I was honoured to receive the Best in Show prize.

One of the newer projects I was excited to bring out is this freshly-fired work-in-progress, an amphibious craft used in arctic oil exploration that I’m scaling up from my GICB 2017 biennale exhibition piece Reflection Through Time and Ice – HMS Terror. I’m scaling up components from this work from 1-inch to 1-foot. This project explores motives in the history of exploration.
I was excited to discuss these new and ongoing projects and any works big or small that are currently or soon to be at LA Pai Gallery, the General Fine Craft, Craft Ontario, and the Gardiner Museum Shop.

I am honoured to be included in the juried exhibition Fireworks 2017. This traveling Fusion: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association exhibition began at Museum London on June 9, and it continues through into 2018, showing at Rails End Gallery, Haliburton – Thames Art Gallery, Chatham – and Art Gallery of Burlington.
