I studied stained glass in the Bay Area of California where I worked in all aspects of the industry. I was trained initially at The Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley, where I worked under glass artists at the top of their field. Over the years there, I taught courses in many techniques of stained glass and mosaic art, built commissioned works, and performed restorations, from small lampshades to large church windows. I eventually worked at The Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, that was then owned and directed by globally known mosaic artist, Laurel True.
After returning to the East Coast (glass tools in tow), I landed in Vermont, married and became a mother. Currently, we are living on our land in our handmade, off grid home in the woods, where I garden and create and teach glass art workshops. I feel very privileged to have manifested the life I dreamed of.
