I began my artistic studies at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, at Harvard
University, where I studied visual design and composition under the artist Albert Alcalay.
My artistic journey has taken me through printmaking, water colors, stained glass, metal
sculpture, and finally kilnformed glass.
I use glass as my medium because of its translucency and natural ability to illuminate.
Each piece is hand cut, assembled and overlaid, fired in a kiln, and cold worked resulting
in the finished piece. In the end, the work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both
ancient and modern techniques celebrating the unique properties of glass, of transparency,
My compositions appear to be numerous variations of a theme. Im abstracting iconic
symbols in a sculptural sense, focusing on form, texture, and color.
My vision of what I do with my work is to be able to convey feelings and stories and
images without too many words. My goal as an artist is to inject life into whatever I
make: in simple terms to make the piece come alive.
