For thirty years, I worked in the corporate world and spent my spare time developing skills in a number of crafts: sewing, knitting/crochet, quilting, painting, and pottery. However, it wasn't until I was introduced to stained glass that I knew I had found a craft I could call my own.
Glass fascinates me! I love the variety of textures, the richness of colors, the fragility and endurance of the product, and most amazingly - my surprise and delight at its interaction with light! I finally started doing commission jobs and selling my creations at weekend shows, consignment stores like WomanCraft Gifts, and even running other craft gift stores.
I like to believe that my stained glass work is similar to what I've experienced in life. By adding a little light to a subject, all the various textures, colors and myriad combinations of glass can surprise and charm you with their unique potential.
My membership at WomanCraft Gifts began in 2003.
