Lampwork jewelry & beads
When I took a beginners lampworking class with Stephanie Maddalena it all clicked, and I found an art form that became an obsession. I have studied under Jennifer Geldard and Cynthia Leibler Saari, in addition to Stephanie.
I demonstrate lampworking at summer camps, craft shows and classrooms and love to introduce young folks to the joys of artistic creation. I believe that artistic expression, whether in the kitchen, in a garden or in an art studio, is an intrinsic part of each person’s soul. Love of, and the desire to be exposed to, beauty is not only a human longing, but it is very humanizing.
