Glass & Jewelry Artist — Aurora, Oregon
I have been an artist my whole life. I have worked as an illustrator for the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper and the City News Bureau in St. Petersburg, Florida. After moving to Oregon in the 70’s I did free lance commercial art, became a goldsmith and did jewelry design. I also still do lapidary work, selling stones to other jewelers on Etsy. I have taught both metalsmithing and fused glass. I have also done pastels. I’ve been a member of Local 14 Art Show & Sale for over 25 years as a fused glass artist. We have traveled in a motorhome for much of our married life and I create and sell glass jewelry (and stones) along the way. I particularly love nature, wildlife and animals as subjects for my artwork. Color and the way it catches light is what I find so appealing about glass.
