PROJECTS

2010         "In-Transition" Project
                  Sculptures are being designed based on old buildings in Ottawa that have a connection to the
                  people and history of the area. They are about the people that were there but not individually
                  named in the history books. Sculptures will be installed in-situ at windows and on balconies for
                  the public to encounter, bringing businesses, building owners and the public together through
                  art and community history.

2009         "Reforestation" Project
                  Small trees sculptures are being created from cast off, scrap and found materials. For every
                  sculptural tree sold, funds are donated to plant one real tree.
