I’ve always been fascinated by the essential idea of glass. The transformation from a liquid to solid allowing the artist’s influence to shape an abstract vision and transform the molten start to a final form.
Influenced by oceans, rivers, lakes and being on the water, it amuses me to create pieces that resonate a liquid state full of motion. The subject of my work reflects a life on the lake or sea.
