“Working with glass has been a journey to merge reality, spirit, and passion together in my work. By taking a common substance, in my case glass, along with themes and symbols which have evoked mankind’s emotions throughout the ages, I hopefully have transformed my glass into art to appeal to modern imaginations.”
