I grew up around art and artists as my father was an abstract painter. My favorite subject in school was always art. I've painted for the fun of it for many years and after raising a family and a career as a floral designer I have decided to make art my focal point. Although I have taken some college courses I consider myself self-taught.
My inspiration comes from my gardens and some of the beautiful places I've visited over the years. I usually start with a photo I've taken and then try to capture what attracted me to the subject matter.
In 1995 I took a class in glass fusing and was hooked. Since then I have taken workshops by Roger Thomas and continue to learn all I can about kiln-formed glass. I've tried to take my knowledge of painting and translate that to my glass pieces.
