As a highly skilled stained glass artist, I have a passion for creating stunning and intricate works of art that capture the beauty and complexity of the world around us. With a focus on 3D stained glass portraits, I have honed my craft over many years, developing non-traditional techniques that allow me to push the boundaries of what is possible with this ancient art form.
My work is characterized by its exceptional detail and artistry, with each piece painstakingly crafted by hand to ensure that every element is perfect. I take great pride in the quality of my work and the satisfaction that comes from seeing a piece come together, from the initial sketch to the final polishing.
As a dedicated artist, I am committed to ongoing professional development, staying up to date with the latest techniques and technologies in the field of stained glass. I am always eager to take on new challenges and to work with clients to bring their unique visions to life.
If you are seeking a talented and passionate stained glass artist to create a one-of-a-kind work of art, I would be honored to work with you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss your project and to learn more about my work.

~~~~~ STAINED GLASS TECHNIQUE PUBLIC PROJECT 2022 - 2025 ~~~~~
Stage 2: Weather Testing Public Project - I have created several different Stained Glass finishing techniques pulling from other art mediums to create 4 different panels. Each panel will be hung outdoors and exposed to 12 months of Colorado weather. The goal is to determine which technique is long lasting in order to create Stained Glass pieces that can be hung outdoors without risk of glass breaking, UV damage causing color changes, or becoming damaged by touch. Panels are monitored closely either by daily visits and public panels are monitored by Any broken sections are removed immediately to comply with health & Safety regulations.
