Glass just seems to bring the ocean out of me. I grew up spending quality time fishing and snorkeling on Cape Cod Massachusetts. This experience, combined with my life as
an artist, creates a line of work focusing on sea life. I’m also a scuba diver, which has deepened my love of the ocean. The visual experience of the deep helps create
variety in my work, represented in my coral reef scenes and other aquatic environments. The sense of harmony
when being immersed in the ocean helps create emotion
that flows into my work using both clarity and color.
To manipulate molten glass with fire is a way to look
closer and experience what I love with an almost extreme
mode of consciousness. This heightened sense of
awareness is what I strive to maintain. It is the same sense
I experience while diving. Staying present with my work
helps me when trying to find a balance of color, light,
transparency, and form. For me, glass is a perfect
medium to mimic the sea while reflecting the fragility of the
oceans sea life and eco-systems. My designs express
what I miss, what I look forward to, and what I dream.
