My experience with glass is evolving. I strive to design and build every piece as a completely new experience. My recent session at Pilchuck Glass School has left an indelible mark on my creativity. I’m excited to create more commissioned pieces and larger installations. As an emerging artist,  I pull inspiration for my work from my instructors, working in the hotshop and the interaction with other artists that share the passion for glass.  Living in the Northwest, I’m fortunate to be exposed to many of the world’s most renowned contemporary glass artists and galleries. I look forward to growing my creative expression, improving my glass blowing skills and contributing to the art community in Portland.

I’m fortunate to be able to pursue my dream of creating art.  As we all know, there are millions of  people who don’t even have the basic necessities to survive. What they dream about is what we take for granted. Like clean water, sanitation and medicine. To do a small part to help, I’m donating 100% of all sales to charity. Please email me if you would like to know more about how your money and my artwork can make a difference.
