For as long as I can remember, art has always been an impactful part of my life. My fascination with art began at a young age with the introduction to numerous art materials during the creation of different art projects from elementary school to a well stocked arts and crafts closet at home. It was not until high school when I was initially exposed to art glass while creating a stained glass art piece. A few years later, during a summer vacation to Door County, WI I was exposed to fused glass while working at an interactive art studio. The tactile environment of scoring and breaking the glass sparked a passion that lead to discovering a true love for fused art glass.
After receiving a BFA from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2009, I pursued my dream and opened up my own studio space and solidified my passion to make a career as an artist. Working in Milwaukee, WI I am able to create fine art fused glass pieces in an environment all my own.
Using glass as my canvas, I am able to embody my fascination for expressions and faces into my playful and creative fused glass pieces. Through the use of contemporary colors and one of a kind designs, my pieces truly express a playful appearance that leave each and every piece with their own unique and individual characteristics and personalities.
