I started my interest in art in my early teens with two years of working in
a commercial studio creating Byzantine mosaic murals, while still in high school.
Also, during that time, I designed and cut semi precious stones into jewelry. I was
given my first camera when I was about fifteen years of age and later secured three
years of college training in photography. I attended Art Center School in Los Angeles
and then majored in ceramics and printmaking at Northridge State University. After
graduation my black and white Etchings were juried into the Laguna Art Association,
as well as The Los Angeles Art Association.
My first job after attending the University of California graduate arts program
was a photographer's assistant in a Hollywood studio and then as an Art Director
and Executive Producer in T.V. commercials for two different advertising agencies;
where, I received two Cleo awards. After moving to Northern California in the early
seventies, I started a career as a builder and designer of floating houseboats in
Sausalito and now have returned to my roots as an artist and sculptor. After working
with Stained Glass for many years, I have now turned my complete attention and love
towards thick fused cast glass. My judicious use of dichroic coated glass in my castings
shows a special sparkle that I call magic, which allows me to explore light and its
many reflections. I am also casting borosilicate glass that allows large glass sculptures
to be displayed outside.
