Fused Glass ARtist

Inspired by the world around me, I design and create fused glass art that is always decorative and usually functional. The inspiration for my designs comes from just about anywhere… conversations with friends about the latest food fads or pop culture, colors in TV commercials or weather maps, patterns in fabric or carpeting, flowers in a friend’s garden, or a bright blue sky framed with Autumn leaves. 

After spending nearly 20 years in the corporate world, I decided that I needed more joy in my life, so I took a sabbatical that never ended. The bright, happy colors I use in my work bring me joy and make me smile... and often bring smiles to the faces of those who see it.  

For the past 12 years, I’ve also been spreading my joy with others by teaching them how to design and create their own fused glass art.
