It is a joy for me to share my love of glass through teaching.  Let's face it, there is enough war, hatred and ugliness in the world, what I share is my love and appreciation for the beauty of glass and the joy of creativity.  The way I see it, each pretty piece of glass created is a tiny step toward a better world.

"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."  Pablo Picasso
