The need to make things has always been with me, like a shadow, always present but not always apparent. I now use glass in its many different forms as the main material to express my personal creative vision; the resultant pieces exist somewhere along a fluid boundary between fine art and craft.

Details about work or recent projects

My current body of work includes exploration of two main areas; the abstract forms are inspired by diving underneath Indonesian Sea Mangroves, while others are inspired by the complex macro-level structures of life forms such as the Radiolaria, different forms of marine protozoa, and the tangled overlap of competing Coral colonies.
