Secret of Sunrises Selected for Albuquerque Public Art Program
I am thrilled to announce that the City of Albuquerque has selected my piece, "The Secret of Sunrises," for the Albuquerque Public Art program. A Call to Artists went out in August and I submitted two pieces for consideration. I was notified in October of my selelction, and I could be more proud that one of my pieces is now in the permanent collection of the City of Albuquerque. I delivered the piece on March 3, but I don't yet know where it will be displayed. I'll keep you posted.
I am proud to announce the publication of my new book "Tell Me a Story: The Language of Glass" featuring my fused glass art. The book is a documentation of my journey through the art of fused glass, from my first interest in the medium to the stories infused into my finished pieces. Email me through the contact page if you are interested in purchasing a copy.

It is with regret that I have decided to leave Sumner & Dene Gallery in Albuquerque and Act I Gallery in Taos.

Thanks to Roy at Sumner & Dene for the opportunity to show in his gallery these last few years, and to Anita, Deanna and Gary at Act 1. I believe this is the best direction for me so that I grow as an artist and I look forward to the future and new designs in glass.
