Born and raised in Germany and living on Maui since 1987, my love affair with glass began almost 20 years ago. Starting with regular stained glass and then glass mosaic, I was introduced to glass fusing in 2003 and have been 'hooked' since then. I am fascinated by the different properties of glass - its fragility and strength, translucency and depth. I love to create functional pieces that add beauty and harmony to everyday life.
