Art has always been an integral part of my life.

I began working with glass after taking a course at a community college in Vancouver, BC.

I discovered lampwork by a chance meeting with another artist and not knowing where to go to learn I ordered a kit online, read a couple of library books, threw caution to the wind and fired up my torch. I love working with molten glass! It has a fluid beauty to it that won't allow you to force it with your will. Creating with glass requires patience as you learn to find the right flow and quality for your artistic concept.

Lampwork and jewelry making has become my passion - sharing it with others is the icing on my cake!
