My “stories in glass” have evolved over time. However, one fact, my love of nature, remains constant. Many of my creations celebrate the memory of a loved one or the joy of a special event. All capture nature’s elegance and remarkable diversity.

A life-long “Jerseyman,” I’ve honed my craft under the watchful eye of teachers, mentors, and friends that include:
  •  the late George Vail who introduced me to the world of architectural reconstruction and forensic sculpture 
  • William “Bill” Marlin, Ed.D., a dedicated teacher and established painter; and 
  • Paul Stankard, the internationally acclaimed glass artist who encouraged me to strike out on my own in 2009.

New Jersey, the “Garden State” and home of our nation’s first National Reserve, the million-acre Pinelands, continues to serve as a living laboratory for me. ​
