My Work is a celebration of color It is the brilliant, lush colors of glass that rejuvenates my soul and ignites my passion as they flow into objects. My latest, Circles explores textures, colors, and transparency vs. opacity .
The transparency of glass reminds me of the strength and at the same time the fragility of life. I love melding light and color into a kaleidoscopic window of movement, through this seductive medium of glass. Through this transparent window of glass you are invited into a world to explore the depth and fragile inner beauty that exist in and around each of us.
