Formally trained as a commercial artist, my early years of design and illustration gave me the opportunity to explore different mediums. Now, as a fine artist, I'm enjoying all the crayons in my box. Watercolor, pastel, oil, collage, glass, and mixed media~all present their own elements of excitement for me, as well as their own set of challenges. I selected these examples of my past work as a representation of my range and style.
Works in Glass
Stained glass, paints, inks, resins, found objects--I've had so much fun combining these elements to create these truly unique pieces.
I've used old Pennsylvania farmhouse windows and vintage mirrors ~ I love the feeling of working with objects with history, of giving them new life.
The layers of glass, paints and resins offer a reflectivity and depth that is startling. I am constantly inspired to try something new.
I was honored to create this window for the Maryland School for the Blind in Baltimore. I was entrusted with one of the original windows of the venerable Newcomer Hall, circa 1853. Upon the completion of the building's renovations, this window was hung in the lobby.
