Artist’s Statement:


Bio/Education & Experience: 

I was a teacher for many years, and  a school counselor for the last 15 years of my career. I worked in an art-integrated elementary school, where I re-connected my passion for the arts. As a counselor, I’d let the students explore their passion through the arts so they could have a positive self-image. One of the strategies I used with the students was for them to create small clay forms while expressing their emotions. While working with the students, I also started to create works of art. 

Outside the school, I also started developing my own passion, and I started exploring fused glass. I was immediately hooked on working with glass. My fascination with glass grew even more significant after participating in several classes and workshops at the Craft Gallery and the Artmory Art Center in West Palm Beach, FL. I have taught Fused Glass in West Palm Beach, FL, Leesburg FL, and also in Newland, NC at the Avery County Senior Center. As a result, I have been creating fused glass art pieces since 2010.
