Glass works have always intriqued me and I've loved to watch glass blowers/makers at work. I'm especially facinated with artisan's and crafters who work with and create smaller and more intriqicate glass works. If you like and enjoy glass blowing, glassworks, and/or jewelry, I believe you'll fall in love with the works created by this Arizona Artisan....

I had already been selling my artwork on my website and Ebay auctions for several years when a friend told me about Etsy. I felt it was the perfect place for me. I really enjoy having a place where other artists could meet, chat, share ideas, thoughts, and sell our handmade creations. I have met many friends there and hope to be there for long time!
How long have you been working with glass works?
I made my very first bead in December of 2000, been melting glass ever since. Went at it full time and quit the day job in 2001,and still addicted as ever!
Wanting to try every new tool or color of glass that comes out. haha! I so wish my budget allowed for that!
I have been playing around with the idea of hosting some glass classes out of my home. Possibly a few "creative" weekends throughout the year where people could fly in and have a bed and breakfast style experience and set up in our spare bedroom, eat meals with us, maybe do a bit of sight-seeing around Arizona, and of course learn some fun things with melting glass! I hope I can get the idea up and running!

One word that describes you?
What was the last funny thing you heard?
I would have to say that the last Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday had me laughing pretty hard. When Meatloaf went off on Gary Busey because he thought Gary stole his art supplies. Gary is one crazy cat and his self made acronyms are hilarious!
Have you ever ridden a motorcycle?
When I was 16 I tried to ride a huge Honda Goldwing in a parking lot. I layed it out and scraped it up on the asphalt. Haven't ridden a motorcycle since. But in my 30's I rode around on a little moped scooter, does that count?
