I am stirred by faces and atmosphere . I use glass to capture the light and shadows; while adding its own. I love the way images in glass become universal, without identifying markings of color. Glass seems to blanket the image the way the sky blankets the earth.
In childhood, long before I imagined working with glass, events focused my fascination on it.
A hurricane pounded against a beautiful round window shielding me while shredding the boardwalk below.. My grandmother's glue chip window shed light on her dying, easing my pain.
I find the softness of carved glass meditative and revealing. I want my work to offer surprises over time.
Through sandblasting in glass, I seek to make pathways for light to energize intuition and unnamed awareness.
