I was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1960. I immigrated to the United States in 1986 to teach in New York City. On Christmas Eve in 1989 I moved to Provincetown, Massachusetts, with my two cats, to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. After experimentation and study in an assortment of art mediums I discovered the beauty and wonder of glass. I completed a three-year apprenticeship at Pearson’s Studio before starting my own studio. My stained glass panels and candleholders are bold departures from the traditional. My signature style is the use of what I refer to as “lace leadwork”. Every piece I create is unique and reflects a medieval style, which springs from my Celtic heritage. My series of “Geometric Variations” can be seen in galleries throughout the northeast including the Decordova Museum gift shop and the Don Muller Gallery. In the spring of 2001 I moved to Putney, Vermont to accommodate the growing business and a desire to live in a vibrant arts and crafts community.
