Artist's Statement

I believe we all need to be surrounded by positive energy so our life-force may thrive. It is my intention to create beautiful works of art that are also functional. Working with glass is the way I stay centered and balanced in beauty and it makes me happy to know that I might impact others in an uplifting way.

Design Integrity
With a background in interior design/ architecture, stained glass windows, loving nature, quilt-making, tile and stone installations- I use my intuition to add color as necessary and emphasize texture and line to create positive and negative spaces in my work. It's important for me to express a harmonious flow of energy & I hope you enjoy the end results.

The Process
The items in this collection consist of multiple layers of glass and enamel and sometimes compatible metals such as fine silver, 14 karat gold, copper and brass. After I establish a design I select the best colors, cut the glass to size, assemble the piece, fire it in my kiln and fuse at the proper schedule & wa-la!.

My Work
I understand that attention to design elements is critical for a successful work of art. For the last decade I have pursued an innate passion to create/record visions of beauty & it is what I rest upon and follow in times of uncertainty or confusion.

San Francisco supports the arts through our 40 plus year old Street Artist Program. I have been a member since April 2004. What a truly magical experience it has been working in the shadows of palm trees and hi-rises downtown at Justin Herman Plaza across from the Ferry Building Farmer's Market.
