I am a practicing artist and arts education researcher living with my wife and son on the unceded and unsurrendered lands of the Anishinaabe and Kanesatake First Nations, known now by the settled name of Hudson, QC just outside of Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. I offer classes in my studio on Quarry Point in Hudson and at the Baie-D'Urfé Potters Guild on the Island of Montreal.
I have a doctorate in Arts Education. I consider myself a community based artist and research visual arts perception and computational thinking as it pertains to the process of drawing and design. I am a member and currently serve as Former President to the Executive Committee of the Baie-D'Urfé Potters Guild on the Island of Montréal. I have taught art classes and workshops in my home studio,and at community centres since 2001. I received my start in teaching art to young people at arguably Canada's foremost art school for children, Arts Umbrella in Vancouver. I taught and developed visual art and animation curriculum there for six years. It was while working here i felt compelled to commit a great portion of my life to studying and becoming a visual arts education researcher. Most recently I taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University.
Classes I teach/taught have included: Intermediate and advanced throwing, Clay Sculpture and Portraiture, Nature Journaling, Drawing & Painting, Emergent Drawing and Design, and Animation.
