Woodburning is my favourite medium.  Although nature studies are a frequent focus of my work, Celtic designs, pet portraits and silhouette impressions are some of my other themes. I also get great satisfaction working on commissioned pieces.     


My artistic career began as a figurine painter and master mould maker in an Isle of Man pottery, before I became the owner of a commercial stained glass studio and regular exhibitor of drawings in juried art shows and magazines.


Now, working out of Newmarket, Ontario, Canada I am fortunate to be able to practice my art full-time. Exhibiting for the first time in the 2016 Canadian Woodcarving Champions, one piece recieved 1st place in the woodburning category with others placing 2nd and 3rd in catagory.

My latest passion is creating Embers Bookmarks.  I am very fortunate to have found a way to create small pieces of art that are unique, practical and affordable. My bookmarks make a personal and long lasting gift for all ages.
