I have never climbed Mount Everest, jumped out of an airplane, have never and I'm not a former CIA operative, although I really was offered and declined the job at age 22 in order to explore the world as a flight attendant for Braniff Airlines. I have, however, been madly, passionately in love with my soul mate, Mike, who moved 2000 miles to be with me and has helped me expand our efforts into juried art festivals and online sales. I'm a fervent believer that anyone can develop their artistic skills at any age. Remember, art is in the eye of the beholder, even if it’s only for yourself and the joy it gives you. I grew up in St Paul, Minnesota, graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Spanish, which expanded my world. I currently live with the aforementioned soul mate in Dallas, Texas, developing new jewelry designs with new materials and techniques.
I started taking stained glass classes in the early 90's. I bought all the equipment and glass and covered every window. This was my last piece created placed in my living room window. It is 6" X 3". I gave away all my stained glass and supplies in 2019 so I could focus on other art.
Lots of exciting new materials and techniques have been added to my art recently. This includes combining precious silver clay and metal casting to my repertoire.
Your's truly in my glass studio (garage)!
