My paperweight expertise evolved from a formal art and technical background; a Bachelor’s degree from the University of California and a Master’s of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University complete the education. Over 35 years of studio and scientific glasswork have also provided essential steps in my artistic development.
The creative challenges of glass have guided me to pursue a career in lamp work paperweights. My glass art is documented in several current books and is included in the permanent collections of the following:
Museum of American Glass, New Jersey
Canterbury Museum, New Zealand
The Bergstrom-Mahler Museum, Wisconsin
My work has been featured in the Smithsonian Institution catalog and is available at major art galleries and through dealers worldwide.
