I turn to nature for color inspiration and guidance, and am generally more interested in organic forms than in symmetry. Deserts, mountains, water, wildlife, and prehistoric art open me up to what glass might say to me. When I travel, I use my camera to capture ideas, which often show up in my art glass.
Interestingly enough, I do my best problem-solving and creative preparing when I’m asleep. I usually have no idea what I am going to make in my studio until I get up, and go stand in front of many different colors of glass with a cup of coffee in hand.
I am very blessed to have this relationship with glass. I thank everyone who has—or will—support me in my work.
