My journey into 2-D paper & fused glass art was sparked by attending classes and feeling the great pleasure in learning new art mediums.  Now in full retirement, I have truly rekindled the artistic part of me and have found my love, once again, for looking at my environment, reading, trolling web sites for ideas and tapping into my own imagination to find inspiration for my work – sometimes to the detriment of my need to sleep!

My 2-D paper art form allows me to bring my creative side to life through the design of paper dragons, animals & nature scenes.  Using white watercolor paper, scissors, glue and tools, to bring texture & design to the paper, I find the relaxation and portability of this art form gratifying and calming.  I have learned I love the beauty of simple design through paper art and the complexity of transferring the multidimensional work of my paper designs to fused glass. 

Fused glass, unlike oil paint and paper, is an unforgiving medium - one which has taught me a great deal about the properties of glass, preplanning my projects, choosing colors and balance, experimenting with metals and powders on glass, and most importantly - checking and rechecking kiln fusing schedules before pushing the kiln “start” button.   The joy of opening a kiln filled with perfectly fused glass projects is wonderful start to any day.

I will continue to take classes, listen to video tutorials and experiment as I grow in knowledge and creativity in mediums which seem to suit me very well because for me there is excitement in the learning process.
