"I was first drawn to glassblowing at an early age because I wanted to learn how color was infused into glass objects. My work is typically filled with color since color has always been a deep fascination for me, and it shines through in nearly all of my work. After ten years of working with glass, my love for color has grown even more apparent. I feel a deep connection and inspiration with nature within my work. Nature possesses so many different colors and patterns, which for me is an endless palette of ideas and concepts to convey into glass. Every day I consistently try to advance myself when I begin to work and be the very best I can be."
