Born and raised in the Philadelphia PA area, I settled in Oklahoma City via Air Force and called it home for 21 years. I received a BA degree from Oklahoma University. My interest in art started as I was remodeling property and wanted something unique in design. I moved to central coast California and my glass art exploded as I learned technique and experimented with kiln fused glass. I was represented in many galleries from Santa Cruz to San Diego. I specialized in private custom commissions to include kitchen backsplashes, lights , fountains and mirrors. I currently reside in Tucson Az enjoying my passion and life journey as it continues.
I as an artist have worked with several mediums to include metal, ceramics, sandblasting, and fused glass. I have been doing glass art and private commision work for 13 years. I consistently challenge myself to create unique and functional items with a combination of mediums not typically used. I call my work "COLORS OF THE SOUL" because it is vibrant and alive and reflects my passion for art and color. The transition of solid to liquid to solid again reflects to me my journey of life, which I have limited control and create with my guidelines and self education and I love the use of color to express that.
