“I am a glass artist exploring impressions of landscape and culture through artifact and object. I use heavily textured hot glass forms and mixed media to convey a sense of experience with each piece. From tiny object to large installation, my goal is to evoke as sense of recognition and discovery within the viewer through gritty detail and shared integrity of material. I see glass as a critical element in this process, astounding in nature and possibility.”
