“I view art making as an exploration of self and the world around. There is my constant urge to experiment and push the boundaries of materials. Sure, its ‘alchemy’ and a connection to the greater esoteric unknown but it is also a path through the tangible world- via being observant and eager to play. Playing with optics and angles, texture and dimension - I intend to create portals that can transport the viewer into another thought.

Teaching is something that I always wanted to do and I am enthusiastic about enabling people to tap into their own creative ability. Kiln glass is a very technical medium and I feel lucky to have had a well rounded education at Bullseye Glass where I work and teach classes. My foundational learning was in printmaking and there is a lot that can be shared between glass and prints. The classes I teach involve incorporating image and pattern into glass and working three-dimensionally.“
