Born and raised in Regina, my prairie roots run deep. I earned a BFA Honours cum laude in 1976, receiving the Judy Poole award upon graduation. Outside the studio I have been a world traveller, trekker, athlete, gardener and reader, with the two world wars being a subject of keen interest. I worked for Air Canada for 35 years, retiring at the end of 2012. Art and art history have always been a constant; however, it has only been since 2013 that I have again been a practicing artist. In Dimensions 2019 I received the Les Potter Award for Excellence in Sculpture.
