I was influenced in the art of stained glass from my mother. I remember being young and watching her create such beautiful works of art. She always encouraged me to pursue art and gave me the freedom to explore any and every medium. She taught me the stained glass technique and encourages me to this day to continue to be creative. I graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree majoring in Oil painting and sculpture but my current passion is Stained Glass and its endless possibilities. I try to create items using traditional methods in a non-traditional way to bring stained glass into a modern "fun" art form.
