“Glass as a medium of self-expression has dominated my artistic endeavors since my self-taught first stain glass piece in the late 70’s. No formal training is a reoccurring theme in the many mediums I work in and have accordingly acquired the many required tools for. My artwork is an attempt to recreate a moment in time, an atmosphere, the feeling of connection with the creatures that inhabit the many emotionally moving moments of time and space I have experienced in daily living and travel.
I rarely sketch a work in advance but instead sort of walk into the piece re-creating the moment from deeply ingrained memories and feelings associated with the chosen subject or place. The closer I go into the scene the more I see and record, often discovering that I saw more the first time than I was aware of. Hopefully others, though my art, will re- connect with their forgotten brushes with Nature’s profound beauty.”
