I grew up in Belfast, Maine, and received a BFA from The Massachusetts College of Art in Boston in 2000. It was here that I studied a multitude of disciplines involving glass as a medium. Torch work, which was not covered at Mass Art, had certain qualities that were desirable for the creations that I had dreamed of making. Immediately following graduation I spent the summer learning techniques that I employ today, from instructors Sally Prasch and Robert Mickelsen. My floral visions investigating adaptation, that had not until then been able to be produced with the detail and delicacy I had so desired, were on their way to being realized. I currently spend most of my time behind the torch instructing others about this process that, after eighteen years, still creates much joy and wonder for me.
