J is a native Coloradoan. Growing up in a state that had over 300 days of sunshine she had an interest in light streaming through glass. She began working with stained glass in 1975. Her true interest is in the texture and line that comes with sandblasting on glass.
J works on panels, vases, bowls, and beveled mirrors. Her designs are innovative and original. After spending too many years behind a desk in the health insurance industry, the creative side of her called with relentless fury. She now works full time in her studio and creates unique and fun etched glass items. She is a member of Glass Artist Fellowship, Lakewood Arts Council, and 40 West.
