Ada is the rugged turquoise island of my childhood. I used to walk the beach and gaze out to this special place. Its silhouette is etched in my memory along with the colours of the sand and sea and brilliant sunsets.

It is here I began to collect seashells and pebbles and keepsakes   …little tokens of my experiences to keep and to share. My quest to capture natural beauty evolved into photography and painting, crafts and jewelry making.

It was when I discovered lampwork glass that I was able to realize my dream of forging the sensation of my memories and emotion into a timeless and beautiful work of art.

I left my practical career and the home of my childhood to live the dream of dedicating myself to the art.

I share the dream with you here..   .welcome
