Artist Statement:

"I make fused glass to convey the spirit inside me; as a way of expressing my joy and gratitude for the beauty in the world. The spontaneity and unpredictability that are part of glass fusion mimic the best parts of life. You will see bright colors, unusual designs and unique shapes in my art that parallel the vibrant world in which we live.

Fusion allows combining and layering of colors, texturing and shaping of form, and an end result much greater than its parts. I come to my Art Works studio everyday to see what my kiln has done to the glass inside it. Like Christmas morning, I never know exactly what I'm going to get but I'm pretty sure I'm going to like it.

My work focuses on creating functional art; art that can brighten everyday life. Fused glass is food-safe and allows me to create handmade objects to use in the home in so many ways. Whether it is a piece to serve a special dinner, a gift for loved friend, or a decorative piece that makes you smile, it makes me happy to think my art is brightening people's lives. I am drawn to the lasting quality of glass. Long after I am gone, my art will shine with the beauty in the world. "
