As a small child my mother, also an artist, opened her own stained glass business in Fairbanks, Alaska. Through the years I worked at her shop, which started out small but grew into one of the largest gift shops and working studios in Fairbanks. I began dabbling in different forms of art along with teaching classes in the shop.
Over time, I discovered my own personal love for glass mosaics. I began creating unique and beautiful works of art that were inspired by the nature around me, along with my experience growing up in Alaska.
