INDIVIDUAL - SCAD ID - #120
Aiken County, SC
I have over forty years of personal growth in my craft, and an additional six years apprenticeship under a master artisan who taught me large panel architecture and construction. I spent an additional 5 years under an artistic mentor who shared creative structure and design coaching and fostered and encouraged my professional career. Over 15 years in business, I possess skills and abilities to create the functional work of art for home, business or house of worship. I enjoy teaching others and investing in the continuation and development of future artisans. The operating workshop in Aiken, South Carolina provides many opportunities for exposure to old work techniques and contemporary applications in art glass.
I am inspired by life experiences, emotion and nature. Born and raised in Laguna Beach, California, the small artist community sparked a love for art in all forms. Glass emerged as a preferred media at age ten (Thank you Ms. Kennedy from 4th grade!) I create fresh, vibrant images that capture the essence of life. Creating elegant designs depicting landscapes, still-life and abstracts….classic ecclesiastic to fantasy themes. I dream in glass!
