I am a Saint John artist with 20 years experience in stained glass. I work in glass because I'm drawn to the light. Light is energy.

Each color of glass transmits a different energy wavelength. All those different engergies woking together bring a piece to life.

I started doing stained glass in 2002 when Monica, my wife,  bought me a 10-hour class for Christmas. I made a goldfinch suncatcher and was hooked.

I love equally the artistic creativity and the technical hand skills behind stained glass.

A happy retirement from the education field in 2016 meant I could focus full-time on my craft.
