Hello,

In the last few years I have branched out into copper foiled stained glass. In some of my pieces I marry my mosaic style with solder. My floral suncatchers are my favorite, each flower is a unique design, inspired by my gardens, my imagination and my growing collection of stained glass.

My latest adventure has been with metal. I recently completed a metalsmithing class at Maine College of Art and I am currently practicing, experimenting and generally having fun with all things related to metal. Naturally I have already started merging my love of glass with my new found love of metalsmithing.
