About

My twin sister and I were just 6 years old when we started art classes on Saturdays at the Toledo Museum of Art. After class we took turns deciding which exhibits to look at. My favorites were the "glass" and "Ancient". Our move to Michigan ended the art lessons, but they were replaced by trips to Greenfield Village, where my curiosity for glass and clay continued to grow.
My parents are very curious and creative people too. I wasn’t too interested in the basement darkroom until they gave me my first camera for my 8th birthday. We loved to play in the darkroom and making the annual Christmas cards was quite an event! 
Life dreams and goals often slip away on all of us. One day several years ago the dream of getting back into art was realized by signing up for classes. Like a kid in a candy shop, there was so much to learn with so little time. Then, I visited a Caithness glass factory while vacationing in Scotland. I was mesmerized. I knew I had to learn how to do that! Soon I was enrolled in a glass blowing class through the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. This led me to lessons with Annette Baron, owner of Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI. Baron Glassworks is a teaching studio. I am fortunate to be able to say I remain a student of Annette’s!
I now have a kiln and torch to facilitate the creation of glass art at home.
Sharing art is a normal progression of the creative process.  Being able to collaborate with others is a gift!  My mom is an awesome silversmith. Together we collaborate and mix a variety of mediums to create all kinds of "stuff."
As a Christian, I believe we are created in God’s image. As a result, there is creativity inside all of us. It is my hope that everyone will find their creative outlet and have as much fun as I do! After all, it is "art". It doesn’t have to be perfect to be right!
