Artist Statement

I will be demonstrating how I make beads and pendants out of glass using a process called Lampwork Glassblowing. The process is a branch of glassblowing where I use a torch rather than a furnace to create glass art in my studio. I use various tools, including glass 'frit' or crushed glass color blends, rods of various colors and many tools made of brass, graphite, or steel to aid me in my creations.

My paintings are inspired by nature.

I make elegant lighter than air boxes using hand made paper, and re-purposed materials from my custom frame shop to create stunning and creative boxes in various sizes, shapes, and designs. Each in individual, and have unique touches. Some with surprising and interesting designs inside that you would not expect! Others are whimsical and fun.

I also love re-purposed art, mobiles, and wind chimes!! You never know what you may find!
