Celebrating our
Twentieth Anniversary!

Featured Piece
In 2000 I felt that it was time to put down some roots and feeling the pull of the sea, I moved back East, settling on Nova Scotia's scenic South Shore. In 2008 Seal Rock Studio was created.

I recently created these earrings to acknowledge the importance of that time on my designs. It takes a while for a landscape to settle into your subconsciousness. Upon reflection I realized that the pieces I made then were a combination of the two very different areas most important to me- the rocky, distant mountains of Nunavut coupled with the strong ocean horizon I see daily from my new home.

Artist Statement

The reward is in the act of observing. Stone colours, textures, the shape of leaves, the ebb and flow of the sea, the changing seasons - all of these things continue to inspire my work. A gesture of thanks and appreciation.

At first it was a technical challenge - to really learn to see the natural world and to develop techniques to capture a sense of it in metal. But as time has passed I am now realizing another purpose: Connection. People connecting to place, places connected to each other, and our shared connection to the world around us.

“The moon casts 3 shadows, you know.”

One of my students said that to me almost 20 years ago. I am still thinking about it.

Shoreline Ring
This ring was inspired by the ocean’s timeless shaping of our coastline. The Shoreline Ring features the islands, trees and rocky shore of Mahone Bay, on Nova Scotia’s scenic South Shore.

"I just wanted to tell you how much I like my 'celebration of the land' ring you made for me. My friend gave it to me and it is a symbol of the travels we did together this past year. The mountain you added makes it perfect. Thank you so much."

I spent years travelling and living across Canada and in Canada’s Arctic giving workshops,establishing jewellery studios, teaching and encouraging others to pursue a career in the arts.

In 2000 I moved back to Nova Scotia and began work on Seal Rock Studio. My family and I currently live on Nova Scotia’s scenic South Shore. I continue to work as a professional artist, exploring the theme of the Canadian and Arctic landscapes – sharing my experiences both North and South.
