Artist’s Statement

 My original art technique in glass and mixed media developed after studying with a master stained glass painter and experimentation. I am inspired by the qualities of glass and it’s relationship to design, architecture, science and the connections between art and design. The starting point is usually collage from found materials. These materials are layered and painted, then hand cut pieces of glass are reverse painted and applied to the surface. Around each piece of glass I pour a clear medium to fuse the piece together. The result is a shimmering surface with constantly changing reflection as the viewer passes by.
