As a 30 year Alaskan I am now in a position to devote my retirement years to my art. Having moved to the Kenai Peninsula just six years ago I have found a new life of creativity in my work. Using flat glass to create in 3-D is challenging and rewarding giving me a new world of expression. As a glass artisan one’s mind is the home of the finished piece and even the artist doesn’t see the final work until it is up off the work bench and into the light. I love this mystery and am always amazed with what my own imagination brings to life with pieces of colored glass. I began my journey of working with stained glass in Colorado in the early 80’s where I restored old church windows. My love for this means of art expression has grown over the years and always seems to have new adventures ahead.
