Recently retired from 25 years in the IT industry, I now pursue my passion for beautiful glass. I’ve been blessed to be mentored by masters like Paul Tarlow, Jody McRaney Rusho and Bob Paterson. Both the art and the chemistry of glass appeal to me, and nature inspires my creations. Currently I am into re-loved glass from wine bottles and stenciling glass with mica, a sparkly mineral. No matter who you are or where you live, take a little time to pursue beauty. It is absolutely worth the time and the risk.
My passion is making kiln-formed glass, jewelry and decor. I became fascinated by light and darkness when living in Alaska. After moving to Texas I began to use fused glass to channel light into art work, creating objects that change with the passing light of the day. Glass kiln-forming is a trifecta of artistry, material science and faith in the partnership with one’s kiln. Heat and chemistry come together to make something lovely. It also gives me a great excuse to play with power tools. :-) Jewelry, dishes and games are my favorite things to make.
