Artist Statement

My life has been riddled with many diverse experiences. It started, for me, in April 1945 when my mother immigrated to the United States as the first Italian World War II Bride.

Growing up the Army/Air Force taught me many important lessons; we learned to make friends (quickly), the will to try any job opportunity that came available, appreciate the beauty of any place we lived and the perseverance to become successful in our environment.

When my husband and I moved to Central Florida after retirement, we decided to each try our own new hobby and I chose taking lessons in the art of fused glass.

Our local studio introduced me to a way to express my passions through form, color and light. I now operate out of my home studio creating large pieces that can express and combine my experiences with the moment, without boundaries.
