My creative ability was at one time expressed solely through the medium of music.  I studied at Grant McEwen College of Performing Arts in Edmonton.  In 1980 I enrolled at the Alberta College of  Art in Calgary where I studied glass blowing glass chemistry and welding.  In 1981 I moved to Vancouver Island where I set up a studio with Linda Westrom.

At Rhythms Artglass studio we produce a fine line of perfume bottles, paperweights, vases and Christmas balls as well as our own individual series pieces.  These art pieces are blown or formed from glass which we have formulated, allowing us better control over colors and quality.  Linda and I have work throughout Canada.  For thirty years now we have been using the major Canadian juried craft shows as a venue to personally promote ourselves.  Through our travels we have obtained many fine galleries to represent our glass from coast to coast.
I am now semi retired from glass. I am hoping to get back into my music.
I am still helping Linda out managing the studio and producing some of the production items. We still do a few shows a year.
