I am a pediatric cognitive behavioral researcher by trade. I was introduced to fused glass when I was struggling with chemo induced brain-fog. My friend believed that if I did something so out of character for me, my brain would start firing new neurons – and it did. Ever since then I became addicted to how light dances and plays with the colored pieces of glass, the endless growth, and possibilities that this form of art provides keeps me intrigues and wanting to learn more. My artwork is often described as whimsical which is how it makes me feel when I open the kiln.  

I use powders, crushed, and cut pieces of glass.  I transform the hard cold glass by layering the compatible glass elements and firing in a kiln.  Layering and firing are done multiple times to create the depth and texture of the glass piece.  I work a lot in “tack fusing” which fires the glass to the base glass but leaves the texture.  It’s thrilling to open the door each time to see how the piece has developed.  After all, it’s about the only art from that you “close the door and walkway until the next day” to see the results.  It could take many days to complete one piece.
