There is always more artistic inspiration to find in our world than I can possibly find time to work with. There is always a new idea that needs to be artfully investigated. My previous life as a horticulturist, and my current work as a graphic designer, feed my art investigations, and the art feeds my graphic design. It is circular and good. I frequently include the language of graphic design, horticulture and science to focus the communication and messaging in my art. It is found in my kiln-formed glass, my use of glass silk-screening, and glass casting. I use light and color to direct my studies in texture, shape, and species. My glasswork has been included in numerous shows. This is the circle of my life.
