Hello! I appreciate you stopping by to visit my website, and hope you enjoy what you see here!

Though I find interest in many different art mediums, in recent years I have chosen to work primarily with kiln formed glass because it offers endless possibilities of fascination and challenge. Glass is a multi-faceted material. It’s strong enough to shelter us, yet so fragile. While it can appear to be a cold, hard material, its glistening reflectivity is warm and mesmerizing and takes on a life of its own. It can be manipulated by cutting, grinding, pulverizing, or melting it, yet it has such a mind of it’s own that one wrong cut, one deviant degree of temperature, leaves one wondering who’s manipulated whom. The result of overcoming the challenges it presents is a satisfying feeling of achievement.
