Depoe Bay, Oregon
Born and raised in California I spent most of my vacations at the seaside. My love of the ocean inspired my move to the beautiful Oregon coast when I retired. I started fusing glass and making my own jewelry after taking a class at a local community center. What started as a hobby has progressed to a passion for glass and a creative outlet that provides art therapy and intriguing challenges.
I create one of a kind handmade pieces using primarily Bullseye glass which is made locally in Portland Oregon. I find endless inspiration in the marine environment, and by all of the colors, textures, shapes, & designs found in nature. Various techniques are used including hand painting enamels, precision cutting copper inclusions, and multiple kiln firings at different temperatures to create my pieces. I am continually discovering and learning new techniques and incorporating them in my functional and art glass works.
