About

I've been hooked on stained glass since I made my first cut in '97. I've been doing window commission work since 2001. I have met some of the nicest people from all over the US while working on their new windows.

Another very popular item I make is my custom-designed jewelry boxes. Besides my own original designs, which can be ordered in the customer's choice of colors, I also take requests for designs for a special gift. Some examples are Memory Boxes where I've incorporated wedding announcements, photos, names or initials; Display Boxes to show off a special item or collection; I've even made a few cremains boxes for a beloved pet.

A natural offshoot of glasswork is mosaics. Due to the abundance of scrap glass created in my stained glass work, combined with my recycling ethic, my mosaic art was born. My favorite items to mosaic are…

A natural offshoot of glasswork is mosaics. Due to the abundance of scrap glass created in my stained glass work, combined with my recycling ethic, my mosaic art was born. My favorite items to mosaic are 3-Dimensional items that would otherwise end up in landfills, or are just plain ugly by themselves. I love to 'dress them up' in beautiful, shiny glass, mirror and beads and turn them into beautiful decorative objects. Some examples are empty bottles, vases and urns, shoes/boots, straw hats and my newest endeavor, cow skulls.

My last area of interest is Fused glass. It is so amazing to me that I can put a stack of glass, assembled into a design or abstract, into the kiln and the next day I have a gorgeous, shiny piece of glass that will become a dish, plate or bowl, etc.

I am the mother of 3, grandmother of 6, and "flockmate" of 6 parrots. My other interests include my family, reading, movies.....
