What a thrill to reach my 200th Church photographed and documented in my World Widows series of stained glass windows. St. James Anglican Cathedral in downtown Toronto, Ontario is a gothic beauty. My new cellphone wallpaper is the little trifoil window from this church 😀

As the the late February sun slowly gains on the pits of winter, ancient rhythms begin to stir. I love the celtics… they stir deeply.
Late in 2018, I had the awesome opportunity to test my skills for the first time at a making a stained glass pet portrait… of Bizzy, a beautiful little French Bulldog. I was glad the panel turned out nice but the real joy was when I delivered it and got to meet the real thing! Read the story of Bizzy, a Pet’s Portrait
The Design phase of a project is my favorite, hands down! It is here that left and right brain work together to produce a pattern. I love the geometry of drawing angles and circles, using intersecting lines to define the shapes of the glass pieces (left brain). I also love how an image evolves on the page as I call on past memories to envision my topic (right brain). All this to say I find designing very very satisfying.
I just finished a wonderful project in time for Christmas… a 15-panel oak door with a glass mural depicting oak leaves caught up in a wind swirl. It was a delight artistically and a pleasure socially to make this for Rod and Sandra St. Coeur of Saint John. You can read the full story with photos of the making of the 15-Panel Oak Door.
