Tell us about yourself!
I am an Australian artist who moved to Seattle in 2014 to pursue glass in the United States. My main medium is hot glass, but I enjoy working in other glass techniques and other mediums.

Why do you work with glass as a medium?
Glass is a medium that captured my heart. I fell in love with the aesthetics and was captivated by the processes.

What themes do you pursue in your work?
My work tends to teeter between art and science. My master's thesis explored the juncture between medicine and art. My more recent work touches on the broader realm of natural history.

What is your dream project?
One day I would love to create an environment where I could display work that explores the manner in which we preserve, collect, and categorise the world around us.

Why are you a member of GAS?
I am a member of GAS to be involved in the wonderful community of artists and collectors who are as passionate about glass as I am.
