Medium: Glass and Jewelry
Beyond my internal, daily NEED to create, my art itself is all about finding joy in everyday things and experiences. That is what I express with my work and what I hope my art brings to others.
I have been utterly obsessed with glass fusing for the last six years. The more techniques I learn, the more inspired I become to push the boundaries of what is possible. Sometimes this results in catastrophic failure and sometimes it results in awesomeness! Failure makes the successes sweeter. That is how I live and how I create.
My eclectic personal style is reflected in my art. Pulling from diverse influences ranging from Classic Art, The Impressionist movement, Mid Century Modern Design, Punk Rock, Nature, Art Nouveau, Modern Art, Graffiti Art, even a pinch of Steam Punk. I mentally collect images that appeal to me and my work becomes a true expression of all that I am.
I am pleased to be a part of The Arts Council of Placer County where I serve as the Arts Engagement Programs Producer. I am very passionate about bringing art to the community as well as creating opportunities for artists.
I am also very excited to be an appointee on The City of Rocklin’s Art Task Force. Promoting the arts and bringing public art to our community is one of my greatest passions.
