For as long as I can remember I've loved to make stuff. I think I was born to create! Nothing makes me happier than a rainy day spent in the studio creating one-of-a-kind works of art that I hope others will love to have in their homes and on their persons as much as I love to make them.
I was a quilter for over 30 years. I taught classes, managed a quilt fabric store and had many designs published in magazines. I've always loved to make jewelry, and started working with beads at the age of about 10.
Art has always been a huge part of my life. A few years ago a friend introduced me to glass fusing, and I was immediately enchanted with the medium. The way that light shines through colored glass has always been so beautiful and fascinating to me!
I believe that a work of art is infused with the feeling within the artist who created it, and when it's created with love and wonder, those emotions are transmitted through it. Artwork is personal, and must resonate with the person who chooses to buy it, so I feel that when you choose something of mine, you and I have a connection through that piece of art.
I hope you'll find something you love here on my website, or in my booth at one of the many shows I do throughout the year. I'm also happy to do custom orders, and will work with you to create YOUR object of wonder.
