Share some of your career highlights or goals.
I have shared a studio with Andrew Goss for 35+ years; we operate our business under the name Goss Design Studio. I sell my work through about 20 galleries/shops in Canada and occasionally in the US. I have received several awards over the years, including OAC Crafts Grants, Canada Council Travel Grant, Steel Trophy (MAG) and OCC juried shows. Solo shows at Prime Gallery, Harbinger, Lafreniere & Pai. I teach part-time at Georgian College in Barrie and have taught at Haliburton School of Fine Art.
I have been aware of your works since I studied at OCAD primarily with Beth Alber.
I am currently trying to find my way into the Art Jewellery community. I sure would love to use the wonderful education I have paid for, lol. This seems the best place to work at this.
