Born and educated in the northeastern U.S.,I lived in Virginia, Washington and Alaska before settling in Oregon. My profession required analytical thinking, but I always had time to be creative. Some years before retirement, I discovered kiln formed glass and found the passion that has fed my artistic side. The 15+ years in glass have been a continual exploration in this inspiring medium. Through formal instruction as well as my own trial and error, I have broadened my techniques. The colors in nature and linear feel of Art Deco and Southwest designs have inspired much of my art.
