I am the owner of Red Bird Studios, producing flame worked art glass beads. In 2009, I took a lamp working class with Ania Kyte of Turtle Beads in Mission BC, and my desire to “create a million beads” was born. I spend a minimum of 20 hours per week at the torch, perfecting my technique, experimenting with color and simply loving the feeling of working with molten glass.
I am an active member of the Pacific Pyros Glass Beadmakers and work closely with lamp worker and jewelry designer Alicia Champ of Hip Navy Beads (www.hipnavybeads.com).
In the past I have worked with Stained Glass, as well as studied Fine Arts at the University of Saskatchewan, worked at the Banff Centre School of Fine Art, and The Walter Phillips Gallery in Banff, Alberta.
