Living in Colorado, I find it natural to try to capture the beauty of our local landscape into works of art using glass. My initial desire to simplify my style was well suited for stained glass, but after discovering kiln-formed glass, I re-introduced detail and realism into my work. I now embrace this realistic style and use both traditional and non-traditional casting techniques to create sculptures that depict the surrounding beauty. Most recently, my focus has been on how humans impact nature around us – are we acting as caretakers for the benefit of all beings, or are our actions destroying habitat to the detriment of all.
