It's all about the glass!
Glass is an amazing medium because it can be manipulated by so many processes with such a variety of results. I was initially attracted to glass due to its color saturation, but I have grown to appreciate the kinetic quality of the material. I focus on making jewelry because I enjoy the benefits of working on a small scale. Small pieces afford me more opportunity for experimentation. I can also make reasonably priced art for everyday use. It is really gratifying to see someone wearing a piece of jewelry I created.

I studied Greek Art as an undergraduate student at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and as a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The creation and collection of art has always been my passion. I have explored a variety of media through formal classes and personal experimentation. In 1998, while concentrating on stained glass, I took a course in kiln-worked glass in order to incorporate more texture into my designs and my focus has been hot glass ever since. I have attended workshops at a variety of facilities including the Philadelphia College of Art, the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, Penland, and the John C. Campbell Folk Art School. I am an active member of the Orange County Artists Guild and the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
