Artist Statement

In my home studio in rural SE Nebraska, I use the traditional medium of stained glass to design and create unexpected imagery, hoping to offer the observer a fresh view of this vibrant classical art form. My work reflects my creative voice in life.

I create original stained glass designs with hand-cut pieces of colored and textured art-glass. I use the traditional method of stained glass where I score, cut and grind each piece of art glass needed for the design. To construct the panel I use either the leaded or copper foil method, sometimes both. I border the panel in zinc to create a long-lasting, strong and structural piece of glass art. I also create kiln-formed 3-D pieces of art using the fusing method.
