STATEMENT
I have been working with glass as an artistic medium for 12 years using cold, warm and hot techniques, i.e., cutting, leading, copper foil, dalle de verre, sandblasting, fusing, slumping, new and restoration glass painting, glassblowing and casting. Four of those year I worked in a stained glass retail store and sale gallery. The last 3-1/2 years have been spent in a professional stained glass studio doing primarily liturgical glass painting and design, both new and restorative.

During these years I have done painting and design work for several professional studios including Stained Glass Designers, Anchor Glass Studio, Canterbury Glass, Pleasant View Glassworks and Weeg, Barning & Bates Stained Glass Studio. Some of this work has included restoration painting for three signed Tiffany windows, one of which is presently in progress. The pursuit of personal visions in my artwork using glass as an integral form of expression remains a vital part of my life.
