As a multi-faceted artist, my practice has been rooted in independent and collaborative projects involving sculpture, performance, drawing, video, installations, soundscapes. Over the past 6 decades, until recently, my education has been intensely self-directed. Meeting the Ground (2016), installed at the Comox Valley Art Gallery, used falling as a metaphor for death and included sculpture, video and performances. Artist residencies in Quebec and Switzerland and grants awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council have deepened my art practice. In the past 2 years I have considered the possibility of balance, extending my skills with steel welding. My investigation of rising up after falling down has led me to experiment with buoyancy.  Handbuilt stoneware clay structures are made to float in the sea, bearing messages of our past and future. Recently collaborating in ravel an epub in CVAG’s the space between us project during the present COVID restrictions, I live and work in the forest in Merville, BC.
