Artist's Statement:

My work is influenced by my background as a stained glass

painter and cartoon creator for Stained Glass Assoc. in NC.

This experience led to a personal original technique of collage and hand cut pieces of glass attached to the surface by pouring clear mediums.

The shimmering surface informs the viewer passing by, always changing, reflecting light and color.

 Architecture, pattern and science have been  influences in  my work as I continue using glass and collage in different and challenging ways.

I am interested in the environments we live in with more

glass being used in architecture, opening to the world. And

the relationship between art and craft.
