Welcome To My Shop





Welcome To My Shop

After several weeks of putting it off, I have taken some time just to work on my blog.

I  have been a glass artist off and on for over 30 years. 
My first exposure to glass art came when my father commissioned a local artist to make our front door into a piece of custom glass art.  I was hooked!  Seeing the light as it came in through the new door and sidelights. Being outside on a crisp autumn evening and seeing the warm glow sparkle from inside the house.  Yep, hooked!
From then on, I have loved the art of glass.
Over the years I have taken and taught a lot of glass classes while I made a living as a photographer.  Many times I would create an image with the camera just because it would make a great glass panel.
Fast forward a bit: I am now at a point in my life when I am able to devote more of my time to the art of glass. I no longer photograph weddings or commercial work. I now teach photography and mostly photograph landscapes. 
The time pressure is off and I can relax a bit.
Therefore, I have a lot more time to work as a glass artist.  A sizable portion of the photo studio has now become a glass studio and the glass work is beginning to flow from it.
I hope that you enjoy seeing the work and the blog.
