all of this work was completed between the years 1985 – 1992, while i was studying either at H.B. Beal technical school in the Bealart program, or at Fanshawe College or Ontario College of Art (now OCAD) in Toronto, ON. while i consider this to be not necessarily my best work, some of these works are still my favourites simply because of the lengths i would go to create what was in my mind. some of them are by far the most complicated works i’ve done technically, such as ‘the grieving tree’ (a seven foot tall sculpture built from plumbing parts, a wooden box built in perspective, and small lights). this work is here to give some perspective to the work i am currently working on.
