I create one-of-a-kind fused glass pieces. All the pieces displayed in the photo gallery are sold. Items for sale are located on the gallery page and in my store. I am happy to create an art piece from your ideas and I can recreate any art piece that has been sold to your specifications. Email me: email@example.com
There's no end to what I'd like to create and no lifetime long enough in which to do so! My glass art is inspired by the beautiful Tahoe environment in which I live, by the people in my life and by my past experiences. My pieces are usually joyful, whimsical and filled with color, movement and texture. I hope they reflect my enthusiasm, energy and happiness. with the life I have. I hope they make people smile and feel happy and peaceful. Glass fusing has enabled me to use artistic expression to convey what's in the spaces between words.
I discovered fused glass in 2007, three years before retiring from a 38 year school teaching career. Since then I have taken a variety of classes, attended workshops and experimented in my home studio to include new techniques and develop my art work. I enjoy working with my clients to create glass pieces that they treasure.

How Can My Glass Enhance Your Space?
Glass comes in a miriad of wonderful textures and I incorporate many in my pieces depending on the mood you wish to create. I add someor all of the following to a base piece: glass confetti, fruit, powder, metal foils and paint. Each type of glass creates a different texture and emotion. I discuss these types in a later page
You will be thrilled by the brilliant colors and luminescence of glass. Nature provides the palate and glass brings magic.
Often clients want pieces to be three dimensional. That can be achieved by layering different pieces. I glue each glass part to a metal piece that fits into another metal piece located on a different glass part.
