Artist Statement:

" I love glass, for its beautiful transparency, flexibility and ability to move and be pushed into any desired form imaginable. For me this flexibility is the single reason for wanting to play, transform and physically push its boundary’s every day creatively. Its not just about the physical transparent qualities of the material, but how well that transparency translates and transports the ideas I have about the world around me."
