(blown glass)

I was born in St. Louis, MO, and was originally a ceramic student when I discovered my true passion was in hand blown glass. It felt more natural to create with this soft glass, the pieces come out cleaner.  I have now been blowing glass since 1995.

In 2002 I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in glass concentration from California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. During the course of my training, I have toured the United States exploring glass studios. My experiences range from: Inferno Glass Studio in New Orleans, Louisiana to Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, Washington. Internationally, I had training in glass blowing in Murano, Italy. It has been my honor to have had the experience of blowing glass with these famous glass blowers: Dante Marioni, Lino Tagliapietra, Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg!

But more importantly, I challenge the viewer to find ‘me’ in the works.
By finding the ‘me’ in the works, I am challenging the viewer to find himself/herself; who they are and what are their values. It is the mere engagement, the two-way interaction, that is my primary goal and my gift to both the viewer and to myself.”  more…
