About

I make Prayer Machines. They are wire sculptures created from my imagination.   MCR Industries are just up the road from my studio and they do the powder coating for my big Prayer Machines. They are the best!

 

Born in Saskatchewan, Canada I grew up in the Kensington Market neighborhood of Toronto, Ontario. I received my BFA (hons.) from the University of Waterloo, and taught art at the elementary and high school level before leaving teaching to pursue art full time in 1989.

 I like to approach my art with a simple sense of wonder, my intention being to express ideas that are redemptive, revelatory of the reality of God in the world thereby giving expression to mystery. To accomplish this I like to use materials in a simple way, often incorporating moving parts that viewers can play with.
