I have always been fascinated by anything with a past and its own story, so I love bringing centuries-old traditional crafting techniques into contemporary settings. The inspiration for my work comes from all patterns and color palates I see around me: historic buildings, record album covers, an aged iron railing, a vintage design book, and nature just outside of my studio windows. I love the enduring aspect of both stained glass and gold leaf: with the proper application and care, each can be a lasting statement or keepsake for over a hundred years and become a part of history itself.
