Glass Artist

I am a kiln-formed glass artist, creating from my studio in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.  My pieces are fired in a kiln at a range of high temperatures.  Each piece is cut by hand from sheets of glass, stacked, and then fused together in a glass kiln, often returning to the kiln several times to get the desired effect before they are complete.

After an initial glass fusing class in 2009, I have taught myself through trial and error, experimenting constantly with various techniques.  I continue to learn through endless hours of independent research, often online and through various forums created for glass artists.  I strive to create as little waste as possible, and often, pieces that are considered “scrap” glass turn out to be the most beautiful pieces in my collection.

Although I love working with all glass, I tend to gravitate toward colored transparent glass. The way the light passes through the glass creating beautiful tinted shadows and effects continuously inspires new designs.

I am completely fascinated with the process of glass fusing.  There are so many applications to this art form and with a willingness to always experiment with new techniques, I am only limited by my imagination.
