I have been a glass bead artist since I was 13 years old, I am currently 29 years old, so I have been making glass beads for around 16 years. I am self taught, I saw one video and just experimented.  

After making beads for a few years I took one class from Leah Fairbanks. I absolutely love her goddess beads! But, I stopped working with soft glass 11 years ago. Now borosilicate glass is my passion, and I can't give it up!

I was born in California but have lived all over: Missouri, Michigan, Chicago, Tucson, Mexico, Japan, and currently Flagstaff, Arizona. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in May of 2010 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Sociology with minors in Anthropology and Japanese. I plan on staying here in Flagstaff, I cannot imagine leaving this beautiful town! 

This is now my 10th year working with borosilicate glass and I am still immersed in what feels like a fresh budding passion every time I create.
