I am a retired speech pathologist who is living full time in West Palm Beach.  I have lived here for the past 9 years.  A Florida native, I grew up in Miami but spent most of my adult life in California.  Always an art lover and collector, I began taking fused glass classes nine years ago.  I have studied with a private teacher, taken classes at McMow Art GIass Center, at Art Glass Environments,  Kay Weiner’s Glass Classes, and in several other out of town venues.  I now have my own studio and my hobby has become my passion. Working with glass has allowed me to express my creativity and love for color, shape and form.  I get lost in my work and experience a thrill each time I open my kiln.  I own a small company called “Smashing Glass” and have been selling my work at several galleries and on line at my web page and on Etsy.  Now I am thrilled to be one of the artists at the Florida Craftsmen Gallery in St. Petersburg,  Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida and  at the  OSGS Gallery in the Northwood area of West Palm Beach. 


During the past year I have had pieces exhibited in the following juried art shows:
