Sharing of Family & Interests
I enjoy sharing very much and in that spirit I share my kids, my two grandsons, and some of my artistic interests from quilting to stained glass to woodworking to photography.

Zac3
Zachary Aiden my first born grandchild was in such a hurry to get here he came October 15, 2006 rather then December 30, 2006 his official due date. He had to stay in the hospital at Kaiser Hayward for almost 2 months before he could go home. Kaiser Hayward and it's staff saved the life of my grandson for which I will be eternally grateful. Thank you Kaiser for a job well done!

Evan Charles born on his due date unlike his cousin Zachary. Evan was born February 21, 2008 and is the first born for my son Eric and my daughter in law Katie. He appears to have inherited his grandma's red hair!

Kids_Sandwiches

Butterfly_Quilt
One of the quilts I've made.

TREEFull_View
This was an interesting concept to create. I combined wood cut with my scroll saw and stained glass soldering both together to form this scene. A gorgeous combination of textures and colors in one stained glass window.

Roar_7A
This was a fun window to make. It's 3 dimensional with some glass blobs sticking out at various angles. I call this one "ROAR" because it's coloration is so very vibrant.

it__s_DONE1
I designed this window to hang in my master bath. I wanted a visual feeling of being in the reeds near the ocean where all I could hear is the sound of the waves. It worked! This setting is very tranquil and I enjoy long hot bubble baths here under this window.

Butterfly_Lamp
I also enjoy woodworking especially where I can find a way to combine glass with wood. In this piece I've gold leafed the wings of the butterflies to make them stand out. This piece sits in an oak base and provides a soft light which is shown through the shades of orange and brown in the glass.

Cas
My dog Cassie a Bichon Frise and quite the character.

Dreams_web
At the New Year's Eve party at The Essanay I heard the story about the dream this man had. I was moved hearing the story because I too had a dream which I fulfilled which is an awesome experience. I applaud those that dream, those that work hard to make it happen and smile with them at their success! Dream On!
