I have been working with stained glass since 1995, and have been fusing glass since 2005. In addition to basic stained glass and fused glass classes, I’ve taken classes in glass casting and moldmaking, frit casting (w/Phil Teefy), in-kiln glass manipulation, sculptural kiln-forming and raking (w/Debra VanTol), coloring with frit, frit painting (w/Kerry Transtrom), relief image kiln casting and most recently, kilncasting and coldworking (w/Eric Whittemore). In 2008 I was accepted into the prestigious, international juried-in exhibit, Emerge, at the Bullseye Gallery in Portland Oregon. I also had work accepted into “Pilchuck on Display: An Exhibition of International Glass Art”, a juried-in auction of glass art by renowned masters and new talents from around the globe. At the 2009 Utah Arts Festival, I was awarded “Best of Show” and was an invited artist the following year. In 2013 I was awarded "Best of Show" at Art in the Park presented by the Boise Art Museum. In 2015 I won "Best in Show" at the Kimball Arts Festival, and have been invited back for 2016. I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and our beautiful little daughter.
