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!
You can find my work for sale on my website

So I am not sure what it is, maybe the alignment of the stars and planets in favor of my life?? but there has been an out-pouring of blessings lately!  It all started at the end of November and has continued on. Things I have been waiting for, for years, have come to fruition all right in a row! I wake up feeling so happy and so thankful for the blessings in my life. For the big things that have happened, and even the tiny things that just fill my day with joy! The air smells sweeter, the sun even feels brighter!  I wake up with a prayer in my heart, like there is music all around me and I cannot keep from singing! I feel like I have wings and that everything I have ever wanted and ever asked for has come to me. And I thank my Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother!!

You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
