“My love of stained glass comes from always loving happy and bright colors. It all started in 1991 when I was 10 years old and my parents decided to open a stained glass business. You see, the family Hardware Store of 20+ years started to decline because of big box stores and they decided to take a leap of faith without knowing anything and taught themselves stained glass. I was very fortunate to learn right alongside of them.

This makes my love of all things stained glass very personal and something that I plan to pass down to my children. I’m fortunate to be able to have a home studio where I can work and create pieces.

My love for the medium just keeps growing and I find myself day dreaming about the possibilities of glass-work. If I could describe my work, I’d say it’s whimsical, organic and free flowing creations. All of my pieces are created and designed from initial sketch to a finely polished piece of art. I create each piece from start to finish--each one made by my hands alone.”
