Science is art and art is science. Both are my passion. My first career as a PhD nutrition scientist was fulfilling. Over a 35-year career, I held executive-level positions in the food industry, academia and, later on, in trade associations. During this time, I traveled frequently within the United States and internationally.
But in my spare time, I needed an outlet for my creative energy - a way to relieve work-life stresses. I first discovered glass art through a workshop and enjoyed the freedom to express myself by creating beautiful, colorful works of art with fused glass. Now, I am experiencing an encore career as a glass artist.
I create my glass art to share and reflect emotion, movement, and my interpretation of the world around me. My deep vessels, bowls and plates stand alone as works of art, yet each one is functional as well. For commissioned commemorative pieces, I work closely with clients to create a work of art that truly tells their story and conveys their feelings.
