Strangely this desert oasis was not abundant with glass artists when I started.,so except for a few basic classes and seminars, I am basically self-taught.

My work has been in over 200 Galleries & Shops across the US and Canada including The Jewish Museum in NYC and the Skirball in LA. I have taught Fused Kiln Formed Glass to over 900 students the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.
