I started my glass career in St. Jacobs Ontario at The Glass Bead Game with Natalie Noble in 1991. She was instrumental in my inspiration to explore the boundaries of stained glass.

I continued my design and glass journey at the Schilling studio in Kitchener, Ontario and then set my tools aside when my daughter was born in 2000.

I picked things up again in 2020 and haven’t looked back.

I am exploring my relationship to glass related to the beauty of the Bruce Peninsula as I build a new body of work after a 20 year break.

it’s important to me to present the copper foil technique in a contemporary style.
