I grew up in Florida and studied art at Santa Fe College and the University of Florida. I have been a professional stained glass artist for more than 25 years. I recently moved back to my home state from my long-time studio in Pennsylvania's Brandywine Valley.
I work with colored, clear, and beveled glass manufactured in the U.S. and abroad. Each sheet of glass has its own point of interest or "heart." I am often inspired by the glass itself; I start with a design but always leave myself open to change as suggested by the movement of the glass. When clients tell me that my glass looks like it was always meant to be there, I'm gratified that I've helped them achieve their goal of blending their new art into its surroundings.
My creativity is nurtured by the beauty of the glass, by architecture, and by nature. Most of all, I am inspired by my clients' needs and wishes. I pride myself on producing unique designs that incorporate my clients' tastes and vision, overlaid with my artistic instincts.
