I am a long time fused glass artist. I started, as many glass artists did, making stained glass. I enjoyed stained glass and made many windows and fireplace screens for myself, family, friends and customers. When I saw kiln formed glass work at the store where I purchased my glass, I was hooked! For the last 20+ years I have studied and experimented with many fused glass techniques, and have sold many of my pieces throughout the United States.
Although I still love fused glass artwork, I have started to venture into mixed media art. I do always try to incorporate fused glass components into my mixed media artwork. As I have aged, my ability to spend hours coldworking glass surfaces, has diminished. Therefore, most of my fused glass work is now smaller, with lots of texture and color, and many times combined with other media.
