I had so much fun last year working as Guest Artist in Residence at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, Sask. side that I am very pleased to say I will be returning again in summer of 2013. I will once again be working on my personal art practice and hopefully be completing more of my new work on copper. I will also be conducting open studio hours so the visitors to the park can come and see what I am working on. Below I have listed workshops that I will be conducting for visitors to the park. You may want to come by the artists’ cabin just up the hill from the ice cream shop and just inside the main entrance to the park to preregister as there is a max. number of students allowed for some classes. If you happen to be visiting the park outside of the dates listed below, be sure to stop into the artists’ cabin to see the artist featured that week!  Hope to see you this summer!

Special thanks to Cypress Hills Provincial Park, The Creative Partnerships Grant Program and The Arts in the Parks Pilot Project made possible through the support of the Sask.Arts Board and Sask. Lotteries.
