I took a stained glass class about thirty years ago, and was hooked with the first sun-catcher. Glass is a living medium that changes with the light, the time of day and the season. I have been designing and crafting stained glass panels from that time. With the purchase of a kiln in 2004, I was able to add fused and painted glass to the panels and to make plates and coasters. Key inspirations for my work come from both the symmetry and rich colors of rose windows and also the natural world.
I participate in juried art and craft shows and produce pieces on commission. The medium of glass continues to awe me, and the joy of designing and creating in glass remains as intense now as it did when I first began.
