Being born into an artistic family, my father and grandfather were practicing artists, I continue the family legacy with glass. I am captivated when finding appealing combinations of elements in the everyday scene.
Glass is the media that reveals this natural vibrancy to its utmost. I enjoy the technique of using glass to create something that is both abstract and literal. “
