Artist Statement

I am a hot glass flame worker who is creating sculptural, wearable art that is clean, bold and fun to wear.

In My new body of work I am exploring the hollow form.  How it moves in the warm bath of a soft flame, and where it ends up.

I have been working with glass since 1996.  And in the year 2000, I created a unique technique for flame worked glass applying vitreous enamels. This technique has afforded me to use my background as a painter on and in glass.
 
My work is drawn from urban life.  The people, the places, and the soul of the urban traveler.  
 
IT’S THE PROCESS THAT KEEPS ME GOING AND IT’S THE OUTCOME THAT KEEPS ME COMING BACK.
