If this were a "brick and mortar" shop, you'd hear a little bell tinkle on the door as you came in, smell fresh coffee brewing, and see brightly colored patterns thrown on the floor by morning light shining through a stained glass window. But you'd have to be where I am and, odds are, you aren't. That's the beauty of Etsy!

A born and bred Oklahoman, I live only 20 miles from where I spent my childhood. Since earliest memory I've loved creating. I've graduated from crayons to stained glass, but I'm still creating.

My passion for glass happened most suddenly in 2004 when I took classes at my local stained glass store. The good women there mentored me a few years while I perfected technique. The skill, beyond knowledge, comes with much practice and many, many bandaids. Twelve years hence, I have achieved confidence…

My passion for glass happened most suddenly in 2004 when I took classes at my local stained glass store. The good women there mentored me a few years while I perfected technique. The skill, beyond knowledge, comes with much practice and many, many bandaids. Twelve years hence, I have achieved confidence in my ability to create anything in glass. I will even sheepishly say, "I'm actually quite good".

The variety of color, texture, and transparency in stained glass is amazing and inspiring.
I have never been able to settle into a "style". My mood shifts, my interests are fickle - so my pieces are unique even from each other. Having a flexible style makes me perfectly suited to custom work. I love the "brainstorming" of custom projects. I love bringing someone's ideas into reality. The happiness of my customers when they receive their glass is truly what drives me on.

I also offer Mosaic which is a completely natural offshoot of stained glass. You just have so many small pieces (shards) with which to be creative. So much glass-so little time!
