Enticed by the beauty of richly colored glass I use this medium to translate personal experiences into tangible, visual communications. Knowing response arises from individual perception, the fact I have encouraged their thought is my reward.

My focus of work often comes to me Ďin the momentí, born of poignant life experiences or strong visual memories. I approach my work with intensity and a keen desire to communicate well what I have seen, heard and felt.

Through my hard work and the kilnís heat I can manipulate sheets of glass into an effective message. Using multiple layers my work has extraordinary depth. My designs respect both the fragility and strengths of this medium. Occasionally unpredictable in its outcome, glass continues to mystify and engage me!
