I have been a visual artist and craftsperson my entire life; learning to sew at age 6 and knit and crochet at 10.  I began art school at 16; majoring in the studio arts of ceramics, silversmithing and weaving; receiving my BFA from University of Colorado, Boulder in 1981. Over the next 50 years I engaged in woodworking, making rice paper and willow lamps, batik and tie dye, and later dove into watercolor painting, fused glass and metal Sculpture. I earned a Certificate of Sculpture in 2019 from Santa Fe Community College.
7 years ago I was introduced to the art of sculptural and fused glass, and something awoke inside me.  I fell passionately in love with glass artwork.  The play of light with endless color combinations and patterns fascinates me.
I am currently exploring woven tapestry patterns, murine glass cane and bead making, glass jewelry making, new slumping techniques and working with deep vessels and sculptural glass casting. 

I look forward to meeting you at my studio#17, and hope you will enjoy my creative expressions.
