My formal education was in psychology and I spent many years directing not-for-profit social service agencies. Through various life experiences and my work I came to understand the fragility and beauty of life. Figuring out who one is and staying true to the discovery is an essential part of this all too short thing we call life.
Self-discovery and celebrating life's joys are themes that play through all of my creations. I began my fascination with glass as a child watching artists at amusement parks make beautiful, sparkling creations with a torch and clear glass rod. The infatuation has yet to wear off and has grown to include glass as a medium in all forms.
