Printmaking & Painting ...

I'm a studio potter and print-maker living outside Almonte, Ontario in the village of Blakeney. It's great to now also have a studio right in Almonte at Carriageway to pursue printmaking and painting which has been something I've wanted to delve into more since I started using lino cut prints on my ceramic work.

I have been a potter for more than 40 years. I went to art school to study painting and got caught up with clay early on. You can see examples of my work in "Making Marks: Discovering the Ceramic Surface" by Robin Hopper, "500 Teapots" and "500 Vases"by Lark Press, "Handbuilt Tableware", also Lark Press.

I show my ceramic work in galleries and invitational and juried shows around Canada: such as: General Fine Craft in Almonte, www.generalfinecraft.com) and at the annual 260 Fingers exhibition in Ottawa each November ( www.260fingers.ca) .
