As far back as I can remember, my imagination has been a wellspring of ideas. For years I was frustrated because I could not often translate the images and ideas in my head into an external medium in the fashion I desired.

If nature is my muse, then my greatest tools are my hands and my eyes. My eagle eye perception and fine motor control set me apart from the rest. These gifts I can trace back to my father. He was a clockmaker by trade; I inherited his keen eyes and skilled hands. The medium of our art is different, but I try to bring his fine craftsmanship to my work in glass.
