Colorado- The hearts are a very special piece for me. The creation of them began in the latter part of 2000 when a request was made for a glass heart. The challenge for me was that I did not want to make hearts like those already being made. After giving it quite a bit of thought, I tried different things, and kept working at it until I came up something that I liked. In January of 2001 I participated in a show with my hearts, the response was so incredible that it led me to decide to create my own studio so that I could fully pursue this art form.
The hearts are very symbolic and have become my signature piece. Each heart that I make is unique from all of the others I have created and those I have yet to create. To me the heart symbolizes harmony, synergy, love, awareness, thoughtfulness and peace. It is everything that is contained in the higher consciousness that we can all attain, and together make the world a beautiful place.
