I'm a mixed media artist living near the Delaware Bay and have recently relocated from Montana. For over 15 years my main area of focus was creating fused glass in my studio located in Bozeman, north of Yellowstone Park. My work could be found in galleries and shows throughout Montana and the Northwest. I also enjoyed sharing the process of working with your hands and fusing glass to inspire children’s creativity by volunteering time as an Artist in Residence at local elementary schools.
Flash forward. After selling my Montana studio, downsizing and moving to Delaware, my growing portfolio of work now includes mixed media works of collage, encaustic painting and creating unique copper enameled jewelry. Largely self-taught, I truly believe that the art of craft is not just a ‘nice’ activity - it transforms, connects and empowers me to explore different mediums and techniques without reserve. The artistry of craft makes me feel so fundamentally satisfied by using my hands to manipulate materials, make use of tools that extend my abilities, and put my work out into the world for others to share and enjoy. There is also the essential benefit of just having fun!
