Here is an artist who has been working with the medium of glass
for over twenty-five years. After studying Creative Art at Sheridan
College in Oakville, Ontario, she began to work in an ecclesiastical
glass studio, and there began her lifelong interest in stained
Since 1981, she (as artist and glass painter) and her partner/husband,
(who helps in the fabrication), have been commissioned to create
many windows for liturgical, public, commercial and private environments
across Canada and as far away as Trinidad. Their public commissions
include work at the Ontario Forest Research Institute, the University
of Guelph and the Momiji Senior Residence. Liturgical commissions
include stained glass windows in the John Bell Chapel at Appleby
College, Glen Abbey United Church, Oakville, and College Street
United Church in Toronto, to name just a few.
Their work has been exhibited in Chartres, France and Canada
- last year at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery; and was also
featured on the 'Skylight" program for Vision TV in 2001.
Currently she is working on a major restoration project. St.
John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg Nova Scotia, a UNESCO World
Heritage site, burned down last fall. The church is now being
rebuilt which includes restoration of over twenty stained glass
windows. She is doing all the artwork, including drawing and glass
painting, for this restoration in collaboration with the Sattler's
Stained Glass Studio in Nova Scotia. Last summer, this work was
featured on the CBC television program Sunday Report.
