Artist Statement:
The Geology Department has taken students to this area for years.  Here we observe how the rocks are sculpted by their composition, as well as time and climate.  This is a good metaphor for how Mount Royal has stood the test of time and has been influenced by time, culture and academic and business climate. 

Artist Bio
My stained glass and quilting hobbies are very heavily influenced by my love of nature and rockscapes. I often use my photos to inspire my art work. The interplay of color is very important. Assembling stained glass pieces or art quilt blocks is like putting together a puzzle and that is very satisfying when finished!
