Art is a journey and mine started with working in metal. As a jewelry designer, I loved how metal could be reshaped and combined to be wearable art. By chance I took a class in fused glass so that I could incorporate this beauty into my metal work. Where I thought this would be a complement to my jewelry line, I started down a path of new adventure.
My glass art is inspired by my love of the ocean, marine life, tropical surroundings. I love experimenting with glass and trying new techniques. Glass is an amazing medium and the results are a mix of expected, totally unexpected, more than what you could hope for, and what you dreamed it could be. This anticipation drives me to experiment with new techniques, color combinations, and freeform artistic design.
My husband and I moved from our home of many years in Ormond Beach, Florida, to our home in the Florida Keys in 2009. The influence of the beauty of the Keys has begun to show itself in future projects. And, what better place to work than in the middle of paradise!
