This is Me
Like most artists, I grew up drawing, building and imagining. I always wanted to make a living with art, but what that looked like changed over the years.
I studied traditional oil painting in college and delved into sculpture, ceramics, charcoal, watercolor and anything else I could get my hands on. It wasn’t until well after school that I discovered glass. The medium is so drastically different than anything else I had done. I loved it.
Glass is the perfect combination of elegant and badass. I can create something beautifully delicate by playing with a flamethrower.
Glass is the only medium I have encountered that is so fluid. Every sculpture is created in that flickering state between solid and liquid. Working with molten means you must make gravity your best friend or it will quickly turn on you. It gets complicated quickly and very fun.
Pure sculpture to make you smile
My background in realistic painting helps me with the proportions, composition and detail in my sculpture. Creating movement is one of my favorite elements to bring to life in my pieces.
Whether it’s a full aquatic scene or a simple pendant, I want to give my customers a new way of seeing the natural life around them. All of my work is devoid of any functionality or practicality. It is beauty for beauty’s sake and fun for fun.
Pure sculpture to make you smile.
