1. What is your favorite word?
“Mixed-media” (ok, I hyphenated it….call it artistic license). For years I believed that my work had to be primarily if not totally in glass. Releasing myself from that boundary allowed me to truly grow into my own as an artist……relying on materials that truly worked with my concept. I stopped calling myself a glass artist and started being called an artist.

2. What is your least favorite word?
I don’t hate words, just the people who use them to foster intolerance in the world.

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Inside me I still possess a child’s sense of wonder. If my work touches even just a little on this surreal happy place in my head, then to me I have succeeded with my piece.

4. What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
When something is constructed badly, even if conceptually tight, I can no longer enjoy it.

5. What sound or noise do you love?
I love the sound of wind chimes on my own second floor deck over looking the huge park outside my house, and also love hearing a thunderstorm from the same deck and watching it approach from the north for miles before it hits. Both these sounds totally ground me.

6.   What sound or noise do you hate?
I hate the sound of an alarm clock….it reminds of when I worked for other people.

7.   What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck…..I say go with the classics. So multi-purposed!

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would have a food truck called The Pied Piper which would feature savory and sweet pies in 2 sizes. My specialties would be rhubarb custard pie, fennel/tarragon chicken pot pie, and peach/blackberry pie with basil whipped cream.

9.   What profession would you not like to do?
Anything that puts me into an office cubicle.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Hurry inside! I just installed another of your piece in the new Hallelujah Gallery. I just cannot get enough of your work!
