Background

 

 I live on a farm in Mono, Ontario and have spent my working career focused on education as a way to help develop more creative and sustainable societies. Over my teaching career, I have worked in a multitude of countries and cultures (i.e. Canada, New Zealand, Vietnam and St. Lucia). In addition to my formal education and teaching experiences, I have traveled to over 50 countries and visited countless schools, museums, exhibitions and historical sites. I have served on the Mono Township Heritage Committee and am a member of the Ontario College of Teachers.

My art work seeks to explore the aesthetics of class, politics and faith. I am concerned with assumptions of value and explore ideas of cultural power and control. Using various materials, I investigate how modes of insight may harbour non-alienating potential.
