As I work with glass and paintbrushes I am amazed at the transformation of the piece that I am making. Inside me, I feel that in just getting through each day I'm not going to notice anything special, but each time a piece of art is finished I discover many things about myself. At this point my "work" consists of self-discovery and self-affirmation. Through the artwork that comes out of this effort I encounter ideas and people, which is and will continue to be a great joy to me.
