I grew up roaming and “making” in the outdoors of Oregon. Spending as much time outdoors and having been exposed to formal art instruction at an early age has culminated in my being a “maker” of glass that reflects the textures and colors of nature.
I am drawn to the depth and complexity that are possible by layering glass into translucent images of amazing power. Every piece represents continuous learning and renewed excitement. I continue to learn about glass as a medium and I am always pushing myself to translate what I see and imagine into glass forms.
I believe in the power and responsibility of teaching. I have benefited from being taught by amazing glass masters and in turn I am committed to teach others my glass techniques and discoveries.
