Guidng Inspirational Philosophy
"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.  He who works with his hands, his head, and his heart is an artist."                                                                                     
                                                                           ~ St. Francis of Assisi


 Artist Statement

 My work is the physical manifestation of my obsession with color.  I see my glassmaking process as being much more rigid, orderly, patient and well-defined  Ultimately, I aspire to create art that stirs viewers to a deeply emotional response, even if it's only subconscious – a fitting acknowledgment to work that I hope is considered beautiful by everyone while at the same time being significant to the individual.
