My main influence is my surroundings. I find inspiration from the prairies and the lake in the summer and the desert in the winter. Each location presents a unique environment that launches the creation of a visual art piece. I work in glass, clay, fiber and a variety of paint mediums to express my visions. Currently, my main focus is to create three dimensional images by the the use of a kiln and the fusion process of multiple layers of glass. The magic of taking a rigid piece of glass to a molten mass and back to a new shape never ceases to amaze me. I continue to explore ways to incorporate the various art mediums and techniques I have learned to create unique art works.
