I have been fascinated with color since I was a child. Whether I was arranging my crayons or small colored tiles, I loved color. My mother was a water color and pastel artist who had taught high school art before she got married. She always encouraged my appreciation of art and the colorful world around me.
In 1991 I started my journey into stained glass. I took classes from John Stoddard and Christa Moore. After several years of practice I joined Cape Fear Studio and began teaching. I have been teaching for over twenty years. I enjoy watching my students overcome their fear of breaking glass. They have inspired me in their various visions.
To further my appreciation of art and color I have taken several classes and workshops in drawing, oil painting, oil pastels, water colors, acrylics, and colored pencils.
