Originally from northeastern Pennsylvania, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1973. I have held faculty and administrative positions in several local colleges and universities during the past 30 years.
Although the arts were always a part of my life, I only recently embraced my own creative spirit. I discovered fused glass several years ago at the Bay Area Glass Institute and I now work in the RosaModerna Studio. My inspiration comes from the glass itself and I experiment with different techniques. Glass can be an unpredictable medium, so I am often surprised when I open the kiln.
I hope that my glass pieces encourage others to appreciate color and form in new ways and to smile.
