My work is a play between my love of photography and my passion for kiln-formed glass. I create unique, vibrant pieces by layering my own digital images within multiple sheets of glass and kiln forming to create pieces that are a unique narrative of metaphor through imagery.
I have been using glass as my chosen medium for over fifteen years. Glass is a medium like no other. It is organic, created by elements derived from nature itself. The juxtaposition of strength and fragility of glass reflects our connection with the natural world in so many ways. I live in beautiful western Michigan where nature has always been my muse. The images layered within my pieces reflect my personal view. Each piece tells a story. I continue to grow as an artist by attending workshops, residencies and meeting with other glass artists and studios throughout the country.
