Heart Filled Art

Glass art is a medium and I am an artist who uses it to create my love of floral art. I work with pen and ink, watercolors, papers, found objects, clay and glass. I am like the bee that has found a field of clover for I always have something in my studio that involves one of the mediums or sometimes all of them. I am also an Impressionist. I come at my art with a view of my finished piece but a work in progress doesn't always end where I start.

I use old instruments and turn them into miniature gardens or worlds. When I am working with glass, I use both soft glass and hard glass. The difference in glass is their melting point and sculpting features. My sculpture is sold primarily at Art Shows and my glass beads and jewelry is sold on-line.

I am also a Historical Romance writer and currently have thirteen books on Amazon. I love writing but my art is "writing" a story in a visual form. My world of writing and art constantly intertwine.

Welcome to the River of Glass Studio where you will find beautiful and unique small sculpture glass flower beads or quirky glass birds with an attitude. My love of nature and flowers is found throughout my work whether with the camera, my pen or the torch.
