"I enrolled in my first stained glass class in 1978 near Reynolda Village in Winston-Salem, NC when I was in college. Stained glass has become my passion. Sometimes I find pieces of glass that inspire my pieces and other times I may find an object, like a seashell that I love. I spend a lot of time making sure that the glass colors, patterns, and textures, are a perfect fit for each creation. I feel as though I am painting a picture with glass. I cherish the time that I have in my studio. Now that I am retired, I hope to find more time to be in my studio and continue to think outside the box."
