I began writing poetry. It was a door into many worlds. It opened other communities of artists and art lovers. It unlocked new views and ways to express my experiences. I became so excited, I saw phrases dancing through my dreams. They entered my studio and found their way in my glass. I wrote a grant to develop the new idea I was working on. In Dec. 2019 I was honored to receive the Victor Thomas Jacoby Award & grant to begin this work.

Art, Glass & Life
I'm a sculptor working in glass. I look at life metaphorically. This led to writing poetry and an exploration of its possibilities in glass. Poetry allows the inclusion of small bits and pieces of life, the way glass allows the fusion of small bits of color. Together they've become a powerful part of my life that I'm happy to share with you here.
