I recognized my passion to create while attending Boone High School. I furthered my skills while earning my degree in Graphic Design at the Des Moines Area Community College in 2004. I built my workshop in Des Moines, Iowa and created my first panels in 2008. I’ve commissioned several pieces throughout the area and have received a great response.
My degree in graphic design has been useful in many areas other than page layout, logo design and photo editing. I use the same software to create my glass designs and layouts for paintings. It is a useful tool for many other applications as well.
If you have an image you would like recreated in glass or another medium and no one thinks it can be done or feels it is too difficult, give me a call. I enjoy the challenge, but stained glass is only the beginning as I use wood, lead casting and even fused glass in my designs. All of my work is custom made and one-of-a-kind.
I enjoy the beauty, originality and elegance of stained glass which I feel is a dying art-form. I hope to expose more people to its simplistic elegance.
