Biography from The Marshall - LeKAE Gallery:
Artist Statement:

I create traditional and organic blown glass vessels that reflect the beauty and complexity of the natural world. My work demonstrates the history and tradition of the vessel while suggesting the surface as a canvas for expression. Each piece voices an interpretation of nature, from its simplest designs to its most ornate. I take inspiration from the mountains, oceans, and sky and manifest my appreciation into glass with harmonious earth tones.

I was initially drawn to the ancient techniques of the glassmaking process. I have since been captivated by the excitement of the flames and the pace of the exchange between man and fire.

Working exclusively as a solo artist, I have had to cultivate new methods of overcoming the crucial timing and physical demands that assistance teams generally help control.

In addition to blown glass, I also create large-scale glass castings. These "Acculturated Artifacts" exhibit a timeless salute to the Native American culture lost to western civilization and the industrial world.

I received my BFA in glass from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2000 and soon after moved to the White Mountains of New Hampshire with my fiance. After months of planning and construction, we opened Earth and Fire Studio Gallery, a working hot shop and ceramic studio with adjoining fine art gallery. I am now a member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and exhibit at the American Craft Council, The Buyers Market of American Craft and selected fine art exhibitions.
