I am a visual artist who has focuses my energies on painting, evolving installations and evolving installations of paintings. I studied Fine Arts at the Banff School of Arts, the University of Manitoba and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. I have worked at the Canadian Centre for Architecture and The Manitoba Museum.
Twenty-six years ago I felt compelled to interpret visually Canada’s constitutional debate as an evolving video installation, which I was able to do with a grant from the Canada Council. It was a six month evolving exhibition in the Belgo Building in downtown Montreal. I have had a number of solo exhibitions across Canada at venues such as Plug In, S.A.W. Gallery, and The <Site> Gallery. I have also participated in a number of group exhibitions, at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Calgary.
For the last eleven years I’ve been continuing my art practice in Kingston. I was on a number of committees here, including the City of Kingston’s Art Advisory Committee, the Board of the Kingston Arts Council, and the Board of Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre (MFARC). I participated in Jeanne Randolph’s and Cliff Eyland’s exhibition “Your Own Grad School” at MFARC. I joined and exhibited with The Agitated Plover Salon, an artist collective made up of five or six of the artists who had participated in YOGS. With this small collective I was fortunate in having had the opportunity to have participated in most of their pop-up exhibitions and to have shown work in a garage, an old city jail, a limestone basement and a room at Kingston Motel West. I also participated in The Whole Shebang, a multi-disciplinary performance that was led Andrea Nann and the crew from Dreamwalker Dance for an afternoon’s performance celebrating the opening of the Tett Centre. My most recent evolving painting exhibition “Cricket, Corrosion and Cafeterias – Continuing Confounding Conundrums” was held in the State of Flux.
