Glass has a wonder-ful physical property - transparent or opaque - allowing you to see the illusion of space and depth, the constant play of positive and negative spaces. This causes a magical flow within the glass, embodying fun, playfulness, and the spiritual energy of nature. This can be healing - by holding you in the present moment to enjoy that magic, be enthralled and charmed so you forget the world’s challenges. I create so people can experience the wonderment of glass.
I am a fine artist specializing in glass sculptures, mobiles and jewelry, which have been shown in multiple art organizations. I have always been an artist, having first discovered this passion at an early age. I worked with many different mediums – oils, ink, acrylics – but for the past 14 years almost exclusively in glass. I learned about design, space, color and light at Parsons School of Design in NY and continue to be mentored by renowned artists.
Increasing public awareness of glass artists is an important mission of mine. I have curated "Glass and Water", "Glass and Water II" art shows at Rockaway Artist Alliance and "Glass and Fiber" art show at Williamsburg Art & Historical Center. I presently serve on the board for Rockaway Artists Alliance and have been its main curator for the past 6 years.
I reside in Rockaway Park, New York where living in an artist community and by the beach has provided a strong influence and inspiration for my work. Although my original studio was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy four years ago, it was rebuilt with a larger kiln and my art is moving in directions of different glasswork I could not have created before. My ongoing passion continues to lead me to new explorations and designs in glass.
