I have always been fascinated by glass.  I love the fragility of glass juxtaposed against its strength.  It has a tactile quality and combines light, textures and colors which makes it a perfect medium for artistic expression.
I've been creating original kiln-formed glass in my studio in New Hampshire since 2005.  I love working with glass frits and powders to create my own sheet glass.  I then combine them with other types of glass to make unique pieces you can't find anywhere else.


I love developing new skills and learning different techniques that I can incorporate into my art.  I love the creative journey I'm on and hope my work brings as much enjoyment to you as I get creating it. 

I need to give a huge Thank You to the wonderful artists who have shared their talent and been generous enough to teach me so I can grow and improve as an artist
