Glass has a simple yet humble characteristic about itself. It reshapes light.
Thirteen months is a long time. Its the longest I've spent consistently drawing in Photoshop. Over this period, I've seen my drawing/illustration skills improve. I've witnessed the progression of my mark making abilities to visually describe the glass process. In many regards, I think these gestures are emerging from the fluid motion necessary to physically shape the glass.
I consider each of these process illustrations a work of art.
I was raised in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
