Glass Art

When I was 10, I broke my arm at the Old Schoolhouse and had to do a lot of writing for physical therapy, and that’s when I fell in love with calligraphy. From that, I learned to find beauty in the lines, shapes, and colors of everything. I have dabbled in just about every art and craft and loved them all. As I have navigated grief and loss for the last few years, I have found comfort in creating warm glass.

I am an island kid. I grew up on Anderson Island from 1st grade on. I raised my own family here, and I have enjoyed being the island school secretary for nearly 25 years. This is the most beautiful place to live and create because the inspiration for art and life is everywhere.
