Artist's Statement:It took a me a long time to understand my own creative urges. This is a fact:  I cannot be still when creative ideas pop into my head. Almost ANYTHING is fair game - gardening, sewing, needlepointing, cooking,decorating, drawing and painting. In 2007, I realized that the pointilist aspect of needlepoint could readily be transferred to mosaicking, something I wanted to explore in order to make stepping stones for the garden. For about a year,  I bumbled around with mosaics making every mistake imaginable. After breaking up (intentionally) dozens of dishes and pieces of pottery I finally  discovered that stained  glass was the perfect medium for mosaic projects. Presently my most passionate expression for my creative urges is "painting with stained glass."  I absolutely love the drama, intensity, translucence and luminosity of glass. For me, successfully painting a picture in glass is, simultaneously,  like solving a mystery and finishing a jigsaw puzzle.
