Glass / Quitman, Louisiana

Artist Statement

I love working with different types of glass - stained, fused, and flame worked. Lately, I have been experimenting with the combination of the three processes into one art piece. Most of the imagery I create with my glass art is of sea creatures. The glass seems to lend itself to the fluidity of sea creatures in my imagination.
