I’m pleased to be participating in this year’s Lake Scugog Spring Studio Tour, May 4-5, 2013.
This year’s tour brings together the work of 28 artists at 15 different locations in and around Port Perry, Ontario. Eight new artists are joining the tour this year and I am once again being welcomed as a Guest Artist at the studio of Cathy Mark, 25 Glasford Road, Little Britain (location 1 on the tour map).
For further information about the other artists participating in the tour and a downloadable map, please visit the LSSST website. The tour brochure is also available at local galleries, hotels and tourist information offices in Durham Region.
Come out for a drive and self-guided tour to Port Perry, located just one hour northeast of Toronto!
I’m pleased and excited to announce that my piece “Moonrise” was accepted for The Metal Art Guild of Canada’s national juried exhibition “MAG 2067 – Crafting the Future”!
The piece will be on display along with the work of other Canadian metalsmiths and visual artists at Arta Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District from October 31-November 19, 2009. The jurors for the show were: Sandra Noble Goss, metalsmith/jeweller, long-time MAG member and 2000 Steel Trophy Winner; Jay Ingram, host of Discovery Channel’s “Daily Planet”; and Bob McDonald, host of CBC’s “Quirks and Quarks”.
The exhibition explores what Canada will look like in 2067 – will we have achieved utopia, or will we be living a nightmare? Artists were given five scenarios from which to choose, and were asked to create a piece that reflected a particular possible future.

I will be teaching the Wire Jewellery Course at the Haliburton School of the Arts, July 21-25, 2008. Here’s the course description from the Fleming College website:
July 21, 2008
Course Number: ARTS0676
Section Number: 41
Please note: This course requires extensive use of hand tools (wire cutters, pliers) and a healthy level of manual dexterity. Start with the basics and learn to create and design your own jewellery using wire. Go from traditional wire wrapping techniques to original, free-form methods, or something in between. Emphasis will be based on creating pieces that reflect your individuality and personal tastes. No soldering is required and you will have the opportunity to incorporate beads, stones, and found objects to make your own unique designs. Basic hand tools and the use of some interesting tricks will enable you to continue upon completion of the course. Personal style and creativity will be encouraged in a relaxed atmosphere.
Please Note: There will be a $65 material fee payable to the instructor.
