This was the piece that started the thought process of the Olympic rings and how the games weighted heavily on the tax payers.

It seemed a shame that the so many had to
pay for the elite few to participate and benefit.

Certainly the Provincial Liberal Funding Cuts to the Arts Education and Health is a terrible price to pay.

Isn’t there a better way for humanity to grow ?


Yesterday it was a democratic society with freedom of speech... Now one wonders.

“Sitting Pretty“  2013



If stuff hangs around the studio long enough it will become a
form/object/sculpture that adorns our garden.
These old chairs use were used in my Atelier
where I taught for years.  I was mindful of the fact,
“Your mind can absorb only as much as your seat can endure.”
This piece give new meaning to that expression,
“Your mind may endure only if you allow it to absorb“.
