My earliest collaborations date back to 1985. Robert Dodge was a colleague and friend who taught painting and drawing at Bucks County Community College. He and I worked together, for about eight years from 1985-1992, on furniture and sculpture. The highlights of that time were the folding screens. We made fourteen of them.
My next collaborations were with Michael Hosaluk.
These collaborations contributed to Hosaluk’s establishment of the biennial Emma Lake conferences in Saskatchewan, Canada, which began in 1996. Locally, in Pennsylvania, I helped to establish the annual Echo Lake conferences in 1999. In 2018 we held the 20th anniversary conference.
