A return to art began in 2001 with art glass window creations after over a two decades of experience. A formal return to the art world began in late 2006/early 2007 with the artist's new sculptural work and the beginning of many juried exhibitions. Over the past 5 years 30 works have been featured in 20 national juried exhibitions. Self-taught in fused glass, metal and wood , current work focuses on innovative, sculptural, kiln-formed glass/metal/wood design and natural photography. All facets of work pay homage to light and its play on the senses. Work is currently held in private collections in the Kansas City area, Wichita, San Francisco Bay area, San Diego and Colorado.
