My family is from Virginia, USA, but when I was a child we traveled around the Caribbean for about six years on a boat. As the youngest, it was my duty to tie decorative knot work around the ship for safety reasons. This has influenced my construction methods, the use of multiple building components that act as both structure and texture.   My choice of glass as a sculptural medium has a relationship to its ability to mimic the quality of color and light that surrounded me as a child, in the sky above and in the water below.
