Montreal, QC, CANADA


Born in 1980 in Canada, I first graduated with a major in mathematics. I then travelled the world and settled in Japan for a few years to teach English as a second language. It is upon my return to Montreal in 2010 that I started studying glass art - and I never looked back. Since my graduation in 2013, I've had the honour to receive several awards including the François-Houdé Award and the Edgerley-Robertson Award. I currently live in Portugal where I am pursuing a Master's degree in glass art and science at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. My work is an exploration of the poetry of everyday life. I find inspiration in the most simple things - all those things around us that we barely notice anymore, yet, conceal great beauty. I use glass to capture and cast light on that beauty, for beauty, to me, speaks of the very essence of the world.
