Visit Us

Our Hillcrest Studio is located in the historic Escarpment area just above Dundas, Ontario. Newly built on our own property in 2006, this is a working studio and gallery with plenty of natural light and wall space for quiet contemplation. Over the years we’ve surrounded the house and studio with ornamental and organic gardens. Map

Plan a week-end visit! Our location offers plenty of action for visitors of all ages and interests.

Dundas Village is known for its specialty shops, quaint restaurants, and community events The village is a hotbed for artists of all mediums, especially potters! And there’s a spa on every block.

Drop by our beloved Carnegie Gallery., a co-op gallery featuring the work of 100 local artists and artisans, all housed in the historic Old Library, right at the heart of the Village.

Our area is unsurpassed for its natural beauty, at the top of the Carolinian zone and the Niagara Escarpment. The many Conservation areas feature dozens of hiking trails linked to the Bruce Trail and a network of local waterfalls.
