My Portfolio

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.
