I started out as an art student in High School in Red Deer. It wasn't until I was in my 4th year teaching that I discovered glass. Lampwork was my first exposure to glass followed by fused glass. Fused glass is now my main focus. All my work is one of a kind and very unique. I am inspired by organic shapes and the outdoors. Currently my focus is on texture using powdered glass and frit. Fused glass is a lengthy process often with pieces being fired in the kiln multiple times. Many pieces are also cold-worked, meaning they are shaped using a tile saw and/or wet belt sander. I have always enjoyed creating art and I am very pleased that I found fused glass.
