Human and architectural forms are central to my work. I'm interested in how colour, line and light can bring impressions and memories of people and places into focus. I have been painting for many years and have recently returned to printmaking. My goal is to explore and learn as much as I can about making art in these two disciplines. I have studied biology (Dalhousie University, BSc 1980, MSc 1982) and graphic design (NSCAD, Diploma Graphic Design, 1987). I worked as a graphic designer at an advertising firm in Kitchener, then as a lecturer at the University of Waterloo teaching genetics and vertebrate evolution, and subsequently as an instructional developer at the Centre for Teaching Excellence at that institution.
