Since I was a child, I have been sketching plants while my biologist Father was on the hunt through the woods to find endangered plant species. In high school, I got a job at Tyler Museum of Art and Chihuly had a small show, and I was hooked. I went full throttle into going to art school at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I could work with my hands and learn multiple crafts. I manipulated wood and glass into functional and nonfunctional work. After college I moved back to Texas and worked for a wood turning kaleidoscope artist, Paul Knox and at a local glass gallery (Kittrell Riffkind Art Glass Gallery) for a few years. In the years following college, I took classes at Haystack Mountain School and Corning Museum of Glass. I then decided to pick up and move on to a new adventure in Washington, to hone my glass blowing skills as a production and artistic blower. In Washington I have worked production at glassybaby and for artist Stan O’Neil. Now that I have gotten all this knowledge and experience, I am ready to create my own line of art to share with the world.
