I began my glass career 22 years ago as an apprentice to a well-known local cast glass artist, and became a professional artist myself in 2001. Five years later, when I opened my own studio, I began experimenting with techniques to create cast glass memorials as a way to help family and friends remember loved ones and dear pets. The response I got was overwhelming. My memorials are handmade one-of-a-kind cast glass art. They are personal, respectful and thoughtful.
