My Big News!

I love creating figurative sculptures, portraits and other polymer art, but I also enjoy sharing my creative process, teaching both online and in live workshops. Making an heirloom Santa is my most requested workshop – but due to time and space restrictions I don’t offer this course very often. The pandemic hasn’t helped either, but this year is different. For the first time, I’m offering this heirloom Santa workshop as a vacation art retreat where we can submerge ourselves in the whole process and enjoy the company of fellow artists in a beautiful lake house in Quebec’s Outaouais region, just 40 minutes from downtown Ottawa and the Parliament Buildings. This all-inclusive 4 day, 5 night retreat includes accommodations, food and all supplies, materials and instruction, plus some bonus lessons and products exclusive to my live workshops.

Polar Bear Express

The project I’ve chosen is a unique presentation of a Northern Santa riding on a Polar Bear. Although the Polar Bear is a found object and I include it in the workshop, the Santa and each of his accessories and his basket will be hand-made during the retreat. It’s going to be an amazing 4 days of creativity. I can hardly wait to have this art retreat experience with you.

Only 5 spots are available. To find out more about my Heirloom Santa Retreat please visit my website at
