I love to work with my hands. I started working with glass as a teenager, and have been at it ever since. Glass is a material that can be both transparent and opaque. I find this intriguing, and aim to use these distinct properties when creating work.

I spend a lot of time outdoors, walking down rivers and trails, taking my family camping and hiking. There are many similarities between humans (form and proportion) and the natural world. These new forms are a look at what surrounds me. The layering of veins and colors in the leaves of trees are similar to the vascular systems of the human body. The graceful curves of flower petals, seed pods, and river rocks are akin to body shapes, young and old.
