about the artist

about the artist

My love of all things glass started long before I knew how to make my own.  I strolled beaches looking for sea glass, foraged through craft fairs looking for glass bead jewelry, and scooped up little glass treasures every time I traveled. On a whim, I took my first glass art class in 2001 to learn a technique called lampworking, a process of making glass beads using thin glass rods and a torch. By 2005, I branched out to try fusing - and was immediately hooked.

With the encouragement of friends & family, I embraced my passion for glass and decided to take my art to the next level - and share it with others!  Samples of my work are available on the portfolio page. A native of the Washington, DC metropolitan area, I am currently based in Raleigh, NC.  Many of my pieces are inspired by my love of the beach, the Chesapeake Bay, and world travel.  I also find inspiration in my family and many nostalgic childhood memories
