Working with glass became a fascination for me in 2002 after taking my first stained glass class.  I am inspired by the different colors, patterns, and textures of the glass.  My passion for glass coincides with my passion for the outdoors and the Alaskan landscapes and nature.  After working with glass for a couple of years I opened up my own studio and established Denali Arts & Glass Studio in 2004.  I currently enjoy creating stained glass, fused glass, mosaics, and glass beads.  If I am not working with glass you will likely find me cross country skiing in the winters or fishing in the summers.
