Artist Statement

​​FIRED UP! FUSED GLASS.

  I first discovered my love for glass art more than 20 years ago when a good friend gave me a beautiful fused glass platter as a Christmas present. It inspired me to learn glass fusing, so I researched the techniques, tools and equipment necessary and began my journey exploring the endless creative possibilities that working with glass offers. Before long, I was offering my work in gift shops, art galleries, arts and crafts shows, and private events across the Southeast. 

Although I am a "self-taught" glass artist, I received formal art training as a fine art major at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville

from 1977-1980. The dynamic play of color and light through glass inspires my work. My use of color, form and texture to create mood

and movement makes it unique.  I also love to teach, so check out my Classes & Events page for a link to the current schedule of

classes, and come play in the studio if you're in the Birmingham, Alabama area. Thanks for visiting!
