Cold winter days help drive me to the studio. Thanks to my trusty wood stove, indoor conditions are pleasant even when the wind and blowing snow are howling outdoors…
A variety of new sculptures are completed or in the works (several pieces will be unveiled at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Friday, 20 March 2015 — further details to follow).
