The next day we spent wandering around Istanbul. We went to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and peeked in some shops. I loved the garden in Topkapi Palace, it was cool and very pretty. The guards at the gate with guns were a bit scarey though!
I have been creating tiny works of art in glass since 2003, in my home studio in Victoria BC Canada. Working mainly in soft glass I love the colors and reactions they provide. I draw a lot of my inspiration from the Canadian wilderness and the lovely gardens in my area. Victoria is known as the “Garden City”. My personal love for animals and wildlife provide me with a constant source for artistic vision. My other passion is horses we own, breed and train! Between the two passions I am always busy! I am happy to do color requests if you have an idea you are dying to see transfer into glass, but can’t promise it’ll be exactly as your mind had it envisioned! Glass sometimes has a mind of it’s own.
I am a member of the ISGB and Pacific Pyros. I am a self representing artist which means all the beads you see are handmade, one by one, by me! They all go directly from the torch to the kiln, making for consistent crack free beads.
