Welcome - and thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit to my shop.
Like many folks, I work full time and create my art whenever I can. Isn’t it interesting; the more we craft - the more we crave creativeness. Likewise, the more we share with each other the more ideas we have for our working in/with our own mediums. I believe it is all good for our souls!
Photography has been a hobby since my childhood when my sister and I used to help our parents create the annual photo Christmas card. More recently; I spent a number of years shooting weddings for a local photography studio. I had a blast shooting people and helping folks create albums that would fill them with memories for a lifetime.
My fruit and veggie photos started as a way of trying to add color into my own kitchen. A few trips to Detroit’s Eastern Market and I was hooked. The colors, textures, and scents…

My fruit and veggie photos started as a way of trying to add color into my own kitchen. A few trips to Detroit’s Eastern Market and I was hooked. The colors, textures, and scents are so intoxicating. This group of pictures now includes flowers and some of the very colorful vendors that the market has to offer.
As a young girl; my twin sister and I took art lessons at the Toledo Museum of Art. I normally used my “free” time to explore the glass section of the museum. Soon my folks discovered the glass blowing “house” in Dearborn’s Greenfield Village. I was mesmerized. As an adult a trip to one of Scotland’s Caithness glass factories left me searching for a way to learn this craft.
Currently I study glass blowing at Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI under the watchful eye of artist/teacher and unbelievable artist Annette Baron. Glass art is addictive. To accommodate my appetite for glass work I turned a portion of my basement into a studio where I make lamp work beads and cut/fuse and slump glass.
My passion for glass and photography could be summarized by my fascination with color and texture. Light pouring through glass and a lens…well it all provides endless entertainment for me.

Thanks again for stopping by. Enjoy your visit
