My journey as an artist began in my youth, inheriting talents from my grandfather who made a living a a gold jewelry engraver. I find art as a clear outlet for my thoughts, visions and dreams.
I began my work as a Bauhaus trained potter which I pursued for two decades.
As my artistic path continued I reached out to the community by owning a fine crafts gallery near Columbus, Ohio. After many fabulous years I moved to Maui where I taught art to middle-schoolers which enabled me to extend my love of the arts to others.
I have refocused my energy, becoming dedicated to the fire and passion of glass. I feel each piece of my work reflects my emotions and is not merely a piece of jewelry. I think this sets me apart from the standard usage of dichroic glass in creations out there.
Each piece is a unique work of art...all pieces are individually handcrafted reflecting a personality of their own.
I hope you enjoy displaying or wearing my art as much I have enjoyed creating it for you!

Head of Photography, Website Design, Shipping and Customer Service
My journey as an entrepreneur began when I was 12, three years ago. While in Michigan for a vacation with my grandma, we began talking about her business' online component, which is crucial in this day and age. And thus, our journey began. Starting with bright colors, blurry photos, and crazy fonts, this website's first prototype was far from perfect.
I spent a month working on the original outline, often working on the library computers across from my middle school. I learned how to take professional photos with white backgrounds, a DIY situation consisting of three lamps, a curtain, and a dry erase whiteboard. I learned Html for some website components and created a much-needed schedule for my grandma's many shows.
Shipping was also a challenge, but I am very grateful for our constitutional right of the postal service, usps, that allows small businesses like ours to easily ship our products across the states. If you ever contact us, I'll be the one there to help you. Whether it's an inquiry about shows, broken artwork, product modifications, custom work, contacting my grandma or anything else you might need.
Besides being an entrepreneur, I follow in my grandma's creative footsteps, loving street photography, graphic design and collaging. I also like bees, ice cream, hanging out with my friends, playing football, DnD and curling up with a good book.
