My attraction to sand begins with rock which when crushed becomes sand. Every grain of sand is a testimony to an ancient world. I feel the ancient world unfolds on my canvas and through the sand & gesso a new history is created. Harnessing the light through the relief of paintings reveals shapes and shadows of both the new and ancient worlds.


Sculpting the sand & gesso onto glass & mirror and adding forest fragments has opened up a new world with its own stories to tell. Some of my current work is informed by the state of the forest offering an opportunity to contemplate the past and the future.

Usually at this time of the year, I will have been to the

Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra,

I am missing the sound of the Double Bass. Here are a few sketches I had done while sitting in the dark of the concert hall.

They are now a part of my card collection.
