About the Artist


An artist and crafter by nature, I became enamored by the idea of hand crafted glass beads when I saw my first delicately hand wound bead from Murano. A craft shop venture for stained glass mosaic supplies would be my introduction to the magical world of hand crafting my own art glass bead creations. In 2006 I moved on from my practical day job and into art glass bead making as a passionate career. 

My love of all things classical feeds my artistic inspiration regardless of medium, but it is the challenge that glass represents that most feeds my soul. Striving for design harmony, elemental balance and overall mastery of a unmasterable medium is what holds me spellbound, and focused on achievement, within the immortal world of artglass beads.
