About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Glass Artist
Location Minneapolis, MN, United States
Introduction Jewelry has always been a passion of mine. In January of 2006, I attended my first lampwork glass class and was immediately taken with this incredible art form. To work with a medium that captures light, transforms from a solid to a liquid and back again and ending with a unique piece of art was amazingly magical to me. The process captures an idea or feeling and freezes it in time. The final piece represents a unique experience that cannot be repeated. I like to think the magical nature of glass and the passion I have for it comes through in my work. My signature pieces are vibrantly drenched in color, punctuated by texture, and inspired by nature—ocean shorelines, a star-filled night sky, or flowers swaying in a summer breeze. To me, there is nothing quite as visually joyful as the interplay of colors. My use of color and design aspirations are simple, to inspire a sense of happiness and vitality for life and the world around us.
