Although my work in glass and copper spans many genres of art from traditional to modern, nature is a recurrent theme. It gives me immense pleasure to be able to create beauty for others to enjoy.
A life-long resident of Virginia, I grew up in Arlington then attended the University of Virginia. After graduating with degrees in Psychology and Studio Art, I channeled my energies into the world of printing and publishing before realizing my true love was glass. While caring for my growing young family, I searched for a way to express that love of glass in a personal style. In 1997, I discovered a technique combining glass, beadwork and natural treasures with Tiffany style stained glass to create exquisite jewelry and gifts. Continuing my artistic evolution in 2002, I worked with Milenko Katic to learn his unique technique for creating colorful copper jewelry. I now use the best of traditional and cutting-edge technology to combine the copper and glass to create new and exciting works of art. I currently live in rural central Virginia with my family. I am a member of two local art cooperatives and exhibit in several shows each year in addition to creating custom works for clients. I look forward to the evolution of my family and artwork.
