As an artist working in glass for forty years I have learned much about life, running a small business, and the fascinating nature of glass as a material for artistic expression. I believe that glass has the potential of being the most expressive of all artistic media and I lay out this argument in a paper I wrote for a keynote address to an annual meeting of the Stained Glass Association of America.

When reading my blog you will find that I have these other interests, as well.
Since my days in college I have pursued poetry as another form of artistic expression. After all it is language that makes us human. It is one more way for me to stay focused on the individual moments when the visual is not enough to communicate what I feel compelled to say. You may find my poetry a little old fashioned. Whenever I read contemporary poetry I wonder where the rhymes are. I supposed that as a designer I look for repletion as one of the design elements and I apply the repetition of sounds to the design of my poems.

It is in the poetry that I am experimenting with creating with video. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to somehow combine all of the disparate elements of my artistic endeavors: painting, writing, design, photography, glass and music, into one unified whole. Let me know how I am doing with some feedback. I truly appreciate it. Thank you.
