Artist Bio

I have always been fascinated by the outdoors. Ever since I was young my family nurtured my love for nature. When I entered the University of WI River Falls in 1997 I was pursuing a degree in horticulture with a minor in liberal arts. During my sophomore year I found myself in an introductory course for glass. To my surprise, I had a natural talent for working with the material. My pieces logically leaned toward the natural world, heavily influenced by my surrounding environments. I enjoy connecting indoor spaces with the outdoors by creating pieces inspired by desert sunrises, waterscapes, and beautiful plants.

Today I have been working with glass for more than 25 years. I continue to be influenced by organic shapes, plants, and colors. Utilizing both blown and solid working techniques, I create intricately assembled sculptures. I also create vessels in a variety of shapes, inspired by landscapes and seascapes. In either case, all my pieces of glass become a reflection of my awe toward the natural world around us.
