I am a seasoned veteran of the art world, having done custom stained glass for 35 years Recently, I pioneered a new creative outlet, utilizing hand cut mirror to form images of iconic musicians. My passion for glass has always been rivaled by my appreciation for music. Having lived in the music-rich Bay Area in the 1970's, and now residing in Austin, The Live Music Capitol of the World, my inspiration comes from having seen most of my subjects in live concerts. I also accept commission work for other's favorite performers, and subjects.. Recently, I started doing portraits of Native Americans, actors, and other faces that have a story to tell. Because of the new availability of colored and textured mirror, I can now take these images to a new clarity and depth. Each piece is signed and numbered, and ready to hang, they have a 3' cradle, and wire for hanging that becomes invisible.
Since this is a brand new art form, I continually learn with each new piece, and it has taken me in directions that I had not fathomed when I began.The true joy is having the daily anticipation of getting in the studio to find out what the day will bring. I thank my heavenly father every day for that precious gift.
