The Process - How does she do it?!
One of the most important things about being an artist is problem solving. I've been making glass for over 10 years and in that time have had a lot of trial and error, I like to teach and I like to share about my work,. I also think that my perserverance and investment of time are valuable. On this page I will share some basics.
