About

How I became a glass artist...

“My love affair with lampwork bead making began on March 18, 2007. I took a beginner class on a hot head (MAPP gas torch) and quickly realized this medium was what I had been searching for my whole life! After that, I quickly moved up to a duel fuel torch, a Nortel Minor which increased the speed of melting the glass and ability to adjust the fuel to the flame for chemical reactions on certain glasses. My creations are annealed (for strength and durability) in a digital kiln. After learning there were classes available to learn new techniques to apply to my creations, I became obsessed. I took classes from several extremely talented teachers and the sojourn began… Yes, at first it was merely a hobby and now as the Fates would have it, lampwork glass and jewelry making is becoming my chosen profession. If my life’s path had not removed other options, I would not be living the life of an artist-from adversity comes beauty.
