Artist Bio and Background:

The 25 word or less art show application version: Melting glass, fire, color, chemical reactions, testing gravity, creating windows into wearable pieces of art, generating excitement and joy, feeding my soul. 

The longer version: Creating with fire and glass since 2005, I discovered jewelry making after realizing a small child could easily disappear in the growing collection of beads sitting around the house. I have also discovered the joy of taking metal to torch since then and create the majority of my own components in my jewelry designs. I am the adoring mother of two, jackpot winner in the husband category, and the zookeeper of too many pets.
