I’m a transplanted New Englander living happily on a small island in the Pacific Northwest.
I studied philosophy at Brown University in New England. After graduation, I flew across the country with the man I would marry in a small plane he had built. A number of adventures followed, culminating in motherhood - the grand adventure.
Many of my pieces today attempt to express my feelings about birth and the mystery of constant rebirth in nature.
An interest in drawing led me to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston where I developed a love of sculpture using clay, plaster, and eventually bronze. My interest in casting bronze led me to nearby Massachusetts College of Art because they had a foundry. The big surprise was the discovery of their Glass Department and glass foundry. The world of glass became my final destination.
After graduation from Massachusetts College of Art, I received a teaching assistantship at the Pilchuck School of Glass, in Stanwood Washington, which drew me to the Pacific Northwest. It was clear I had finally found the right medium, and the right place. Today I live in a small house with a large studio in which I make kiln cast glass. Please contact me if you would like to visit my studio on Vashon Island in Washington state.
