About me...well I am a full time artist and I also teach classes in glass working and various forms of jewelry making out of my home studio. I have been making my art for the last 20+ years, and I have been through many stages. I work mostly with hot glass, but also love to dabble in wood-burning(pyrograhpy), silver-smithing, jewelry creation, stained glass, painting, leather-work, crochet, and clay. If I stay creating in one medium for too long I get bored, so I move back and forth frequently, but melting glass always draws me back the fastest! Must be the pyro in me!

I am inspired by, and pull my designs from nature and my surroundings here in the beautiful Arizona desert. I love color and can't help but to use a lot of it!
I love living in Arizona and enjoy hiking, traveling, rock and gem hunting, exploring, camping, star-watching, and listening to my favorite music while I burn some incense and create!
Thanks for checking out my stuff and if you so feel inclined to leave a comment!

One of my most favorite times of my day is each morning when I get to scroll through the deviations from the groups I belong to. I usually listen to some of my Native American flute music and have my incense burning, so that several of my senses are touched as I get a morning visual art show! Generally there are around 500-900 deviations each morning with such diversity! Such beauty! Such LIFE! From rock and mineral specimens, handmade artisan crafts, paintings, drawings, poetry, to photographs of all the splendors of nature and the wonderful animals.
I am taken back by the beauty of it all. And what I love best is that I get to see beauty through others eyes. Something that I may have walked passed or not thought about. I get to see all the perspectives from people all around the world on the meaning of "beauty", which all art is. Art is the expression of beauty, through our eyes, through our hands, through our imaginations. Thank you to all of you artists out there for filling my heart and soul and for connecting me to all of the beauty on a daily basis! Can't wait to see what you will bring me tomorrow! :)
