I have been a glass artist for over 10 years now, and it’s always amazing to see what’s possible with this incredibly versatile medium!

I started out as a jewellery artist and eventually found that what I really wanted to do was work on larger projects. Even though I branched out to create larger, sculptural, wearable works of art, I found that I still needed something more. Through plenty of experience and experimentation I eventually developed the technique I use to create my tiles, which I call Kiln-Blown Glass, and they have been a much greater outlet for my creative style.

I am currently focusing on developing my techniques for kiln-blown glass further, as well as my new line of platters with designs that originate in traditional quilt patterns. I am happy to take custom orders for special pieces that follow with my current lines of work, as well as commissions for public art installations for larger venues.

In addition to my own work, I have recently opened Glass Fusing Decals – a resource for glass artists interested in utilizing modern and fun designs in their work. They can be incorporated into jewelry, coasters, platters, and much more! I originally developed a series of designs for my own ‘Birds and Trees’ pendant collection, so I am thrilled to now be able to offer these designs and other new illustrations to glass artists around the world.
