Out of Ruins
It was a hot, humid, sunny, summer day and all I wanted to do was be outside playing in the garden. I had an old wooden window that I had salvaged from a landfill site that I thought could make a garden fence look more interesting. I had remnants of glass that was sitting in a box collecting dust when I thought the two items (window frame and glass) combined could be a clever idea. My first piece was called Gypsy Jewel and I have such fond memories of the color and texture of the design. I knew I had found my passion, my joy. There was room for creativity, ingenuity and energy. My strength of character drove me to dig beyond what already existed in the glass world and this allowed me to create a new art form. I never knew that my introduction to glass would change my life and how over the years I would grow as an artist. As I began this artistic journey in 2003, I began to explore the properties of
glass and learned how to push the limits of traditional glass work and create a whole new glass look. The Out of Ruins technique was developed and refined over the years. It was the gift of imagination, the spirit of moving beyond the boundaries of what could be and accepting the challenges of failure that brought me to this place. My patrons have made me the success I am today.
