I have been blowing glass since starting College in England at age 19. At 25 I moved to Seattle to work with Dale Chihuly and then shortly after for Dante Marioni, with whom I still work with and share his studioI have had the good fortune to work with many people who’s work I respect tremendously, including Lino Tagliapietra, Benjamin Moore, Sonja Blomdahl, Dick Marquis, Josiah McElheny and many more. I consider myself fortunate to be able to do what I love, to work with friends and share what I have learned along the way.
Seeing, looking, searching for a new. Encouraged by parents that traveled, Ioften found myself spinning the globe in my father’s office looking at where they had been and where I too may some day go.Glass has been an educational journey both from an academic and a practical stand point. The journey started academically in 1999 at Centre College and then continued with my MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012. Corning, Seattle, Prague, Lybster, Weil am Rhein, Murano, Nuutajärvi, Istanbul, Toyama, Saint-louis les Bitche and Bergen are just a few of the places this material has taken me. Along the way, I have been fortunate to work, assist and collaborate with many artists who have helped me in the medium and in life in general. Noosh will send in later"
