I’ve always enjoyed doing all kinds of craftwork from working with wood and needlework to beading and glass. I’ve been hooked on glass since the 1980’s when I took my first stained glass class. Stained glass was the medium where I could translate the pictures I saw in my head to an actual piece of art. Over the years I have progressed from stained glass to mosaics and stepping-stones, to fused glass plates and bowls, and now flameworking is my passion. I am still amazed at all the things you can do with all types of glass, either hot or cold, and how the colors interact.  I take classes and work with other flameworkers when I can to keep improving my work and learn new techniques. I’m always looking for inspiration or a good challenge. And I enjoy helping others discover the pleasures of working with hot glass. Check out my website for class schedules and upcoming shows.
