They all told me I'd grow out of it. As a child, I ran around on all fours even though I could walk. As a teen, I preferred to muck out stalls than go to the mall. As an adult, I find myself avidly discussing the finer points of a working canter. I’m one of those for whom horses are not simply a passing fancy, but an enduring passion and a daily inspiration. Originally from Toronto, ON, I've lived in the Czech Republic and England, where I completed a master’s degree in the history of art from the University of Oxford. My education has grounded my work in a strong theoretical and conceptual basis, as well as an aesthetic one. I work in non-toxic, lightweight clay. Sculptures made from these artist quality clays can mimic the look of ceramic, but are lighter and very durable. They allow for new techniques and styles not necessarily available to traditional mediums. I live and work in Vancouver.
