Creating the most beautiful glass works that I can, has been my personal goal or mantra for my entire life. Make Beautiful Things for Beautiful People.
Growing up in a creative home, I started drawing things in the 5th grade and have not stopped yet. My father was a sculptor, my mother his model. Together they instilled a creative, and supportive environment that has sustained me through a few different artistic endeavours. From painter, to potter, to glass blower, I have always tried to make wonderful, beautiful work.
Now, after over 50 years of blowing glass, I still love the act of creating art from this molten mass of sand with my own breath. Hopefully, breathing life and beauty into each piece.
