I am a maker of things. I have been creating things for as long as I can remember. The end product is the goal but what really excites me is the journey getting there: the process and materials used in getting to that end “product”. I have spent many years exploring various processes—ceramics, metal design, print making, batik, weaving, photography, polymer clay, woodworking, water color, kite making, book binding—all for the love of learning what all these different materials can do and how they may be combined to make a new end product.
But glass has been a constant for over forty years and continues to inspire me. There is always a new technique to try. Colored glass is a wondrous thing to behold. Inspiration comes from moving through time and space and absorbing as much as I can from everything around me. The physical and the metaphysical, the ridiculous and the sublime, it's all good.
