"I was first introduced to Raku at the School of Art and Design in Fredericton, in 1981 and was extremely taken by the process. I have continued to practice, teach and develop my own style of Raku.
Alberta has been my home for the past ten years and it's dynamic landscape and unique chinook winds continue to inspire my work."
