I began my studies in glass with Patrick Reyntiens in 1973 at Burleighfield House in England and apprenticed to other glass artists in the U.K., Canada and Germany. With a BFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art, I continued studies at the Museum School in Boston. Since 1978 I have maintained a glass studio in Cambridge, MA and more recently in Somerville, MA.
My work, in which I apply a painter's methods to handblown
stained and flashed glass, has appeared in several solo exhibitions in the U.S. and the U.K. as well as in group exhibitions in the U.S., Germany, Wales, Iceland, Ireland, Austria, France, Canada and Japan. My work has also appeared in several books on International work in glass and numerous other publications.
For the last decade my work has been focused on public art, creating unique site-specific works for civic buildings, hospitals, universities and transportation systems. My ongoing work
includes glass paintings, most of which are now in public and private collections in the U.K., Europe and Japan. One of the main goals of my work in glass is to apply a human touch to an architectural scale.
