Specializing in the Tiffany copper foil method, I create handcrafted stained glass art that is “full of whimsy and from the heart.” I especially enjoy creating works that incorporate non-glass items, such as agate slices, bike gears, and prisms. My hope is that my work can challenge popular perceptions about the art of stained glass; it can be so much more than church windows.
My husband Nick and I have carved out a slice of heaven for ourselves in Bentonville, Arkansas. We have a house in the woods that we share with our 3 furbabies – Libby, Lucy, and Snoop – as well as our newest feathered babies – a blue parakeet named Benny Goodman and a green parakeet named Chet Beaker (Benny & the Chet).
In May 2022, I exited education after having invested 16 years of my life as a band director in public schools. I am now elated to be the Education Director for SoNA (Symphony of Northwest Arkansas). I also work a few shifts each week at The Crafty Shambles Studio Store in Bentonville.
In addition to stained glass, my hobbies include: obsessing over dogs on Instagram who don’t even know I exist, kickboxing, tap dancing, mountain biking, dreaming up reasons to start my own podcast, re-watching Ted Lasso, & wishing I were a stand-up comedian.
