I find inspiration in so many things and will often be driven to create something from what might seem like the most mundane item: a matchbox, a dried flower, or even an old book. I love how a story unfolds as these pieces come together.
My glass paintings began in such a manner. I found these minuscule glass orbs and I knew that somehow they would become part of my work. I have been long obsessed with glass and crystal and I wanted to incorporate them. After finishing a base painting, these small spheres are applied to the painting. The resulting artwork morphs as light and point of view change.
