Although I was not an art major, and my day job has been as an engineer programming computers and building websites, I have always loved glass and mixing media to create functional pieces. Figuring out how to create something is as satisfying to me as the finished product. Before fused glass, I dabbled with stained glass, quilting, macramé, sewing, cross stitch, and more fads than I can remember. I discovered fused glass over 10 years ago, and it has become my favorite media.
I live in Warrenville with my husband, Russ, a retired dentist. We have two grown and married daughters, and enjoy watching our 6 grandchildren grow up.
