My purpose grew from a lifetime of doubting my inner voice. I frantically looked to others to flesh out a persona, meanwhile the fire in my belly was dying. After my third ‘burn out’ and 18 months of silence and recovery, I took my parched soul to my abandoned studio and asked the Goddess of fire “Pele’ to bring my creative spirit back into my life. After many late nights and shredded finger-tips my ‘wild woman’ reappeared. They both asked if I was willing to bleed from my soul even more than my finger-tips. I dropped to my knees and said, “Hell yes! Now what?” And butterflies came into my life as a symbol of transformation and design.
I combine three passions: my understanding of the 5000 year old art of fusing glass, artistic design and my deep commitment to help women awaken their creative spirit, tell their story and live as imaginative a life as possible.
