About

I started making stained glass because it reminds me of my mom. She passed away in 1996, but she is my muse, and my children's guardian angel.

My work has been worn by actresses on The Vampire Diaries and I have worked with the costume designer of the hit CW Series The Originals to create a bracelet that was written into the storyline and is worn by the character Davina.

My Mom was a very talented artist. She made stained glass, pottery, and jewelry. She worked with fused glass and made pendants, did custom stained glass windows, and made beautiful bowls and vases. After she died, it took me years to even be able to look at her work without crying. It never even crossed my mind to try it.

My Mom was a very talented artist. She made stained glass, pottery, and jewelry. She worked with fused glass and made pendants, did custom stained glass windows, and made beautiful bowls and vases. After she died, it took me years to even be able to look at her work without crying. It never even crossed my mind to try it.

I had all of the supplies and tools, packed away in the basement, they were my Moms. I am self taught. I remember watching my Mom work in her studio, and after a push from one of the Moms in my neighborhood who came over and figured it out with me, I started creating. The first thing I made was the most hideous flower you have ever seen. I started playing with the glass, saw an angel, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I use the copper foil technique to create my pieces.

I started making jewelry to expand my horizons and stretch my imagination. I love adding wire to a piece to give it an interesting touch. Love natural stones. Sometimes if a piece of glass isn't quite right, I whack it with a hammer. Elegant, huh?

The entire process is a visual and tactile experience for me. It starts in my imagination, and ends with my finished, tangible piece of art.
