I bring an education in Fine Arts and Art History to Monmouth Glass Studio. Since graduating from Southern Illinois University with a BFA in 2001, I've worked in established glass production studios in both the United States and New Zealand, refining my technique and skills in glass-blowing and fabrication. Continuing my education in New Zealand, I completed a postgraduate diploma in Art History from the University of Auckland, with a focus on the history of Studio glass blowing in New Zealand. I also served as the vice president of the New Zealand Society of Artists in Glass between 2010 and 2012. I regularly exhibit my personal and collaborative glass work through Masterworks Gallery, Auckland.
