Creating art has always been my passion. Living in the Southwest, I am heavily influenced by the local color, continuous sunshine, and the abundance of very talented fellow artists.
A lover of color, my paintings celebrate a "palette of all seasons." The whimsy of combining acrylic, inks, and various fibers add to the uniqueness of my creations.
My fiber work emerged from my fashion collection (2010-2016) of dyed and embellished scarves and wraps. Using my varied collection of material, I create bowls, coasters, and trivets which are unique and functional.
What better way to capture the brilliance of the indomitable Tucson sun than by transmitting it through colored glass? Working with my wife Karen, I "translate" her design patterns into stained glass art. We collaborate on the colors, and I do the crafting of the piece alone. We are currently intrigued with the idea of translating well known artists' renditions into stained glass. I call these my Artists' Works Revisited series. We also do
custom work addressing clients' preferences.
