Born in Saskatchewan, Canada I grew up in the vibrant Kensington Market neighborhood of Toronto, Ontario, then moved to rural Simcoe for high school. 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.
