I have been creating things all my life.

For the first 35 years of my professional career, I modeled the earth to evaluate and exploit economic mineral deposits. I examined the strata to understand fluid flow and the effects of temperature and pressure on mineral development. I integrated disparate data to form concepts to sell to management, other companies, or other countries. It was the great life of an economic geologist selling her ideas.

Now I am a glassmaker selling my ideas in the form of art. I work with molten fluids and see how metal oxides (color) affect the mobility and density of the glass. I create strata with fused pattern bars or plumes of color, like magma chambers, in hot glass to investigate behavior.

Glass Art Society member, 2013-present

Material, form, and content…these are the building blocks of my art. They are interchangeable and have no set hierarchy for me. Over the course of my sculptural career, my explorations have been occupied with understanding the characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses of materials. Characteristics such as texture, color, plasticity, current applications, and their potential applications. Each material has a visual and emotional signature for me. Matching that signature to a form is what determines the content I am trying to express. For the last 15 years, my material of choice has focused on glass and I want my forms to be open to interpretation. I feel no need to explain every nuance of my art, people should be able to view my work, make their own observations and draw their own conclusions.

University of Houston- BS Business Management & Marketing, 2014 Suma Cum Laude

Strong leadership and interpersonal skills supported by expertise in technical, commercial, financial, and business planning. A creative mind willing to tackle complex issues.

Glass Art Society member, 2013-present

I spent my childhood surrounded by creativity. My father is a sculptor and my mother an avid musician and geoscientist. I myself took quite an interest in music during my early years. While attending university I began to notice a persistent need to work with my hands. I did not quite understand what that meant for me until my parents decided to open a glass blowing studio. I took only a passing interest in glass at first. Then I was given the opportunity to attend a week-long intro to glass blowing class and my life changed. This ignited a passion in me for the ever-changing media of glass. Much like the fluid sounds of jazz and blues I grew up on, glass seemed to move to the beat of its own drum. Since that time I have been pursuing glass as both a passion and a living. My work draws inspiration from both nature and music and the fluidity and pattern found in them.
