Whether it’s through my butterflies, birds, flowers, or wildlife, I want my audience to feel the awesome connection we all have to this earth.
My fused glass journey began in 2009 when I took a class at a local community center and fell in love with the medium. I continue to gain experience through live classes, online webinars and tutorials, private tutoring, glass forums, books, and lots of experimentation. For close to 20 years, my husband and I lived on a 300-acre farm in the beautiful Missouri countryside close to the Gasconade River. My connection to animals and nature drew me into doing animal portraits and landscapes using fine glass powder and enamels. Working with glass powders continues to be my passion and my main focus as I expand my body of work into more complex pieces.
