Creating in stained glass is my passion. It is very rewarding to see the glass come to life as the light radiates through the glass. Stained glass challenges me as I always have something to learn and continually work to improve my skills. I have so many interests and enjoy working in different mediums.

This portfolio is eclectic in many ways, but one continual theme revealed in my work is my love of nature. I work in copper foil and lead. I enjoy the science of fusing glass. I am eager to develop skills in metalsmithing and incorporating it with my stained glass. I am learning the art of precious metal clay. I hand assemble jewelry. My husband and I both enjoy producing repurposed art. I thank you and welcome you to my portfolio and hope you enjoy sharing my art.
