Artist Profile
While working as a design engineer for a nationally recognized toy company, I relocated from the East Coast.

I have been creating with glass for the past 16 years.   These objects are contemporary, functional and decorative.

I enjoy working with form, texture and color to create functional art. All objects we use should be beautiful.   Every piece I create is unique.

About the Work
Every creation begins with an idea and a flat sheet of glass.   The glass is then transformed by a combination of cutting, grinding, layering, firing and forming.
