Since completing a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1985, I exhibit in public and private galleries, sell my jewellery collections around the world, and fulfill design and supply proposals for institutions. Custom design and supply of Alumni rings for colleges and universities is a growing part of my work – I designed and supply the “Barley Ring” for the Dalhousie faculty of Agriculture, and designed the Nova Scotia Community College Alum/Grad ring as well as the Shambhala School ring in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My work is known for its strong, sculptural feeling, references to sacred geometry and nature, impeccable quality, and regard for detail that delights.
I relocated to Hamilton, Ontario in 2016 and established a studio at The Cotton Factory.
