My art is my spiritual sanctuary. Originating in a deep respect for the glass tradition, while simultaneously rejecting those confines. The techniques I have acquired through my many apprenticeships serve as a foundation. I push past the foundational forms by adding visual elements such as rings, sanded textures and cane. I want my pieces to convey the spiritual centering I feel during their creation and the calming sense of serenity when I view them. The intent is to share with them, the intimate journey of discovering my artistic principles.
