"For me, creating art is living in a moment for an extended period of time and within that immersion magic happens. In the past, I have pursued that place of magic through my oil and acrylic paintings and in creating clay figurative sculptures. 

In 2018 I fell in love with the endless design possibilities glass art has to combine the interplay of light with colors both subtle and bold. From my well-stocked studio neighboring the beautiful Willamette Valley Vineyards, I draw inspiration for my art from from my past world travels that have exposed me to the rich lives and cultures of fascinating people and places. I also draw upon my imagination. Often, my ideas spring forth from the light and time of day playing with something at hand prompting immediate capture. Always, my goal is imaginative artistry in glass. I want a viewer to look at each piece and ask themselves what is happening here? What's the story? I want it to engage them.
