I have a love of crafts, which began at an early age. In the early 00’s I took a beginners lampworking class with Stephanie Maddalena and it all clicked. I found an art form that became an obsession. I have studied under Jennifer Geldard and Cynthia Leibler Saari, in addition to Stephanie.
I demonstrate lampworking at summer camps, craft shows and classrooms and love to introduce young folks to the joys of artistic creation. I believe that artistic expression, whether in the kitchen, in a garden or in an art studio, is an intrinsic part of each person’s soul. Love of, and the desire to be exposed to, beauty is not only a human longing, but it is very humanizing.
My family and I live in an circa 1889 house in the Historic District of Hyannis, Along with my husband Bruce, we work, read, garden, keep bees, make our own wine and hope to open a public lampworking studio in the future.
I am a member of the ISGB, The International Association of Glass Beadmakers,
