"Verde River Sunset" is a painting I did that was fired INSIDE of the glass.





Amazing...my eyes match the wall behind me.





"Blowing Kisses" Fused Glass (you have to look close to see the face on the right)

Living Life

I love living life and having fun. Creating Fused Glass Murals is my passion. A snapped achilles and a broken foot has slowed me down to the point of gaining weight. I'm out of my cast and intend to lose this weight now.

My Goals:
I have always lived life to the fullest. I have three of the most wonderful teenagers in the world. I snapped my achilles tendon and had the surgery to repair it. After many months and many casts I began to heal but had gained weight and I broke my foot dancing (someone stepped on it can you believe my luck) All of this injury has not stopped my from wanting to reach my fitness goals. I intend to lose the weight I gained and obtain a better lifestyle for fitness.

My Program:
First, I plan to get healthy by adding activity back into my life. I''m finally out of the casts that kept me from being active. I''ve been following a 1200 cal. plan with marginal success so adding the activity is key to me. Creating an environment conducive to healthy living is a tough goal with kids but I believe I can help them (none of them have weight issues...yet!) prevent future problems. I think having this website is wonderful because it''s important to discuss with others the issues that bring us to gaining too much weight. The feedback is important and I love how much of that you get here.

Personal Information:
I am a mom of 3 of the greatest teenagers on the planet! I am a full time fused glass muralist in Arizona. I teach pottery wheel throwing, glass fusion, and art classes. I love hiking (when I''m not in a cast), dancing, and camping. I love being outdoors. When I was younger I flew hang gliders and would love to do it again. I love anything to do with wind. Sailing, flying anything including kites, standing on top of a mountain feeling the breeze, hang gliding etc.

Other Information:
The meaning of life is to LIVE IT! I love traveling. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many countries and to many islands in the Caribbean and South Pacific. I love the tropics. I enjoy beaches and warm clear blue oceans. I am lucky that I was raised by parents that believed in following their passions. I certainly have done that!

Thank you for those wonderful comments - I wish you could see those photo sites for real - it is breathtaking. I, too, love to travel and soak in the beauty all over this planet, then try and translate it in my art - clay, oils and textiles. Always challenging. Good luck with your healing and your goals. I'll keep a watch.
