About

     Throughout my twenty-two year career in glass I have had the privilege to work for and study under some of the most renowned glass artists in the world such as Jay Musler, Mary Shaffer, Paul Stankard, and Clifford Rainey.

     I Began working with recycled glass in 2004 while studying under Paul Stankard at Salem.  Since then I have made it my mission to work exclusively with recycled materials and have developed several techniques that enable me to work with bottle glasses in a novel way.  I currently show at Jay Musler Gallery in San Francisco.
