The natural world has always informed and inspired me, and nature is the predominant influence for all my work. Using a sculptural approach, I strive to capture a sliver of nature’s ephemeral beauty in everything I create. Flameworking has provided a means to explore and discover so many ways to express my veneration, reverence and appreciation for nature, and I can’t imagine my life without glass.
