Ever since I was a young girl, I was always interested in several different crafting mediums, but about 25 years ago, I was introduced to stained glass and have been hooked ever since. I describe it as designing and building your unique glass puzzle. Working with the various colors, textures, and patterns of glass allows endless creativity and produces unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
In the beginning, I was raising a family of 4 young girls, working full-time as a dental assistant, playing slow-pitch, and volunteering with our local Search and Rescue team, so I didn’t have much spare time to focus on glasswork seriously. As my family grew up, I found a little more free time and was able to start enjoying perfecting my craft.
In 2014, my daughters were all grown up and moved out on their own, and my husband and I moved to Peachland to start a new chapter in our lives. This move brought with it a new pace of life and inspiration, allowing me to focus more on my craft. I started working with a couple of local retail shops and selling my art and have now decided that it is time to move forward and start sharing my love and passion for stained glass with others who are interested in learning new crafts.
