There is an inherent balance between artistic expression and technical construction in stained glass. To master technique as well as excel in design is a perfect combination. As an artist, I welcome and embrace both aspects.
My work is often abstract and dimensional. I reference life experiences in an attempt to add meaning to my work. Family illness and death, as well as hope and joy have provided me with inspiration. I haven’t used art as a refuge during difficult and sad times in my life, but use these experiences to help give my work a voice.
I have always had a fascination with color, and color in glass with all its possibilities is one reason for choosing to work in this medium. Picking stained glass for a project is a major creative aspect in glass design. There is a seemingly endless selection of glass in all colors, types, and styles.
