"I'm connected to the visual arts community in Calgary and graduated From the Alberta collage of art and design in 2005. One of the three members of Bee Kingdom Glass, a collaborative studio collective based in Calgary, Alberta. Ryan Fairweather, Tim Belliveau, and Phillip Bandura met at the Alberta College of Art and Design and built their own glass studio in 2004. The studio specializes in unique, low volume glassworks that are known for its vibrant colour palettes and subject matter. The studio's practice is artful in nature versus the mass production of the factory tradition. Each artist has his own body of work but team also works together to design particular works as well as assist each other no matter what the design."
