After my first glassblowing class at age 17, I was hooked. Glass is not only a way to express myself but also a way to fulfill my need to work with my hands and to have something to show for a day's work. At a young age, I learned a strong work ethic from my family but especially my grandfather, who was a stonemason. From these experiences, I learned the value of hard work and the value of mastering a craft. Whether I make functional, decorative, or wearable art, I employ these lessons daily.
