Inspired by the serenity of nature, I seek to express a healing presence and tranquility in my art. My work in glass, enamel and other media communicates a feeling of peace, harmony and respect for nature.

This is a continuation of my healing works.
As we go thru life we all incur many injuries and scars. Some hidden and others require an operation and healing by a skilled surgeon and their team.
There is a higher power that touches us all and guides us and our souls thru these many passages together.
Glass, wood, stainless steel,and paper.
Healing vessel #3
Our bodies are so complex and yet so beautiful. This Murrini and color vessel represents how our spinal cord and nerves are encased and protected in our bodies. They are just a small part of the whole magnificant human vessel, yet they control the all the functions in our bodies. In the end they are also so vulnerable.
Healing Vessel #2
Closing a wound in your body ( the vessel of our lives) after surgery requires sutures which are used to put tissues back together, but they and always leave healing traces.

Healing Vessel #1
Our bodies (Vessels) are designed to be strong, but they also can become very fragile and injured.
They are beautifully built and are designed in so many fantastic shapes and colors.
Then life happens, and we suddenly experience how difficult it is to rebuild them.
I designed this vessel to heal following a friends spinal cord injury.
I hope the colors and design of this vessel will encourage us all to take time to celebrate and care for the wonderful vessels we live in.
They are magnificent and yet so fragile.
Watching the morning sunrises, I feel energized and calm. This panel changes its expression depending on the time of the day, and the light available.

Life presents boundaries that we all can count on and others that are not supported and lead us into the shadows.
Stone and Stainless steel 6x6x6
As humans have evolved, we have produced many inventions that always leave footprints. They either leave our lives or nature precariously fighting for balance.
We live with so many different energies around us. Some we recognize but others we can only imagine. They all relate to each other and provide the harmony of our existence.

These elegant glass vessels reflect the flowers in our garden at the lake.
They are alive with divine color and a small bit of attitude.
Each vessel is custom made in different shapes and sizes, from 3 inches to 14 inches tall.
Feeling the sensual nature of warm breezes flowing thru the seagrass.
