I get my inspiration from many places: nature, picture books, wood or stone carvings, and my collection of stuffed animals.
I have been working with glass for a number of years. I started with stained glass and moved on to mosaics and stepping stones. Then I discovered fusing and I switched to warm glass, but that still wasn't quite the proper fit. When I took my first lesson in lampworking I was hooked. How so many different colors and types of glass can react so differently in the heat always astonishes me. Now I also enjoy sharing my passion with others through demonstrations and workshops.
