My glass sculptures are my attempt to capture nature, specifically marine biology in glass. I have created a window to the underwater world of our oceans in my ocean globes. I continue to push the glass and my creativity to add more depth and character to each new piece I make. I work at the Art by Fire studio, in downtown Issaquah, Washington. We are part of the great glassblowing community in Seattle.

I have been sculpting for over 30 years, perfecting my techniques in multi media, which includes both glass and metals.

My fine art sculptures have been displayed and sold at select Neiman Marcus Gallerias and at Lady Nin’s Art Gallery.

Businesses and private parties have commissioned many of my pieces; and much of my work is in private collections across the United States.
