I received my BFA from RISD in 1982. In the years since, I have been a full time studio jeweler. These days my primary materials are glass and gold. Beginning in 2000, I began traveling to The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass to take classes and build a second set of skills. In 2004 I was an artist in residence there and I currently teach classes in the cold shop. My jewelry has been shown in galleries and museums all over the world and is in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and many others.
