ARTIST STATEMENT: Artistatement I seek to find meaning in the subtexts of things, literally and figuratively. Subcultures intrigue me, they have forms of expression and creation that go against the grain, questioning what is valid or acceptable. Craft is important to me; acquiring a skill set of materials to articulate my ideas is gratifying.Glass is forever challenging, with seemingly endless capabilities that keep me pursuing its qualities to address forms and functions, meta-forms and meta-functions.
