About

These fused glass bugs are the result of my creative side expressing my life long fascination with insects and their kin. I grew up in a pretty amazing household in which I was surrounded by the arts and the sciences--I actually had an observation hive in my bedroom for several years. I graduated from college with a degree in biology, but I dabbled in arts and crafts along the way, taking classes and workshops in ceramics, photography, glass blowing, drawing, and welding. About ten years ago I switched out of the sciences and started working full time in the arts. I am now the owner of the 9th Street Gallery in Newport, OR, and an artist/craftsman. I work mainly with glass, but I also do some photography and some welding too. Sometimes I combine all three.
