I inherited my passion for art from a long line of family artists. I became interested in art at my grandfather’s side in his dark room, at his easel, and sketching outings. I became his student and after his passing I focused on oil and pencil. In the 90’s I developed a love for the simplicity and beauty found in the infinite shades of black and white. My pencil illustrations were published in a surgical atlas and I transformed my photographic film black and white landscape images and vintage portraits. Throughout the passing years I have practiced many differing art avenues; oil paintings, photographs, and stained glass hang on the walls and in the windows.

Stained glass is an ancient art that has evolved through history, and yet it is still a complicated and lengthy process. My love for this ancient art began when I took a stained glass class over 30 years ago. Now, after 50 years of the old nine-to-five at a computer, I have the time to think outside the box and experiment on new and creative ideas. After retiring I decided to focus my need to create on stained glass. I love the emotion that light, color, glass, and recycled chance items evoke. I’m finding ways to combine these elements and tell stories of our remarkable and beautiful earth and its positive qualities, in a happy, fun way. I prefer to create a design for a specific purpose, choose pieces of glass that reflect the mood of the design, and cut the glass so that their pattern, color, and texture support the purpose.
