About me...well I am a full time artist and I also teach classes in glass working, clay, and various forms of jewelry making out of my home studio in Salem, OR. I have been making my art for the last 30 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 a lot of my designs from nature. I love color and can't help but to use a lot of it!
I enjoy hiking, traveling, rock and gem hunting, exploring, camping, star-watching, and listening to my favorite music while I burn some incense and create!
I feel so blessed to be able to live my passion and follow my journey of "Sacred Creating". I do this with intentional creating, meditation, blessing and even prayer, using these to infuse my hands and heart and to create with the healing energies of love! This process is so very healing for myself and I hope healing for others as I create and offer my "Medicine Art". My hope and joy is that I can touch just a little bit of this world with unconditional love through the talents I have been blessed with!
