Stained Glass has been a part of my life for many years, as an artist and instructor.
I began my education in stained glass study at local studios, in Colorado and in Minnesota. I took lessons at Orono Community Education, and continue hands-on learning.
I am the Stained Glass Instructor for Orono Community Education and Wayzata Community Education. My studio is located in the Discovery Center, an old elementary school, in Maple Plain, MN. This is where I teach several classes each season of the year. Students learn how to build a copperfoil window, then progress to building larger windows with lead (came). I enjoy teaching several age groups. In my mosaic classes I teach projects making bird baths, votive candle holders, mirrors and more.
I design and build custom leaded and copperfoil windows, stepping stones and mosaic designs for your home or office. I use old windows for my latest mosaic creations.
I have designed and built custom windows for the Chapel at Meridian Manor, a family crest above the bar in McGarry’s Irish Pub, and several private residences.
The photos are creations made by me and my students.
