Fine Art Medium: Fused Glass
Color and Light…
Growing up in an artistic family, I was always encouraged to create. I majored in fine arts when starting college, but in the 1970’s, computer programming was more lucrative. After earning degrees in computer science and accounting, I spent decades driving a desk, but dreamt about the day when I could focus on art. Creativity is now what drives me. My focus is fused glass. I love its color, reflection, dimension, and the challenge of working with heat and glass. Varying temperatures, thicknesses, and reactive qualities of glass can produce spectacular results.
I am primarily self-taught in the art of glass, but I have also studied with a number of well-known glass artists including Kari Smoller-Minnick, Kate MacLeod, Richard LaLonde, Tanya Viet, Gail Stouffer, and Barbara Becker Simon. The world of glass is ever-changing, and offers countless opportunities to express with color and light. The creative journey continues….
