Located in the Corktown vicinity of Toronto Ontario, my studio serves as both workshop and home to myself and best pal Lulu, an Australian shepherd/cattle dog. Having spent a 40 year career in advertising as an art director and writer, I’ve finally succumbed the personal side of my creativity which I have chosen to express through the creation of light fixtures.
Although I have manifested my God-given talent in many different ways, this most recent creative endeavour is the culmination of some of the things I enjoy most - the essence of light, the discovery and rescue of discarded shiny metallic bits and pieces (I’m convinced I was a crow in a previous life) and the process of fitting them harmoniously together in unique and otherwise unintentional ways. I marvel at the coincidence of totally unrelated elements created in totally different ages in completely different locations magically fitting together to make something entirely new - it’s just plain fun.
Kindest regards, Gary
