Making art got into my veins as a teenager. I was painting, making sculptures, but it didn’t feel comfortable. Glass spoke to me when I saw a program about making kiln formed (or fused) glass.
I sought out classes across the country and have been so fortunate to study with a master kiln formed artist the last six years.
My personal vision has narrowed over the years from being focused on color, because glass is so intrinsically beautiful, to becoming more of an explorer.I am now trying to look beyond the color, challenging myself by bringing my past experiences, many in this locale. Being in and on the water,walking many trails and skiing our mountains has soaked in and I know they find their way into my artwork both consciously and subliminally. They weave a story of a woman pursuing her life passion.
I am a member of the Glass Art Society and the Vermont Glass Guild. My work is in private collections along the east coast and can be seen at the Strand Center for the Arts in Plattsburgh and the Northwind Fine Arts Gallery in Saranac Lake,N.Y.
