Living my dream!

About me...well I am a full time artist and I also teach classes in glass working and various forms of jewelry making. I have been making my art for the last 20+ years, and I have been through many stages. I work mostly with hot glass, but also love to dabble in wood-burning(pyrograhpy), silver-smithing, jewelry creation, stained glass, painting, leather-work, crochet, and clay. If I stay creating in one medium for too long I get bored, so I move back and forth frequently, but melting glass always draws me back the fastest! Must be the pyro in me!

I am inspired by, and pull my designs from nature and my surroundings here in the Arizona desert. I love color and can't help but to use a lot of it!
I love living in Arizona and enjoy spending time with my hubby, kids, and fur babies, hiking, exploring, camping, star-watching, and listening to some beautiful Native American music while I burn some incense and create!

I am so thankful for the artistic path I have been able to live. I hope I can reflect my passion and love for the creation process in every piece that I create!

Thanks for checking out my stuff!
