My love for art began with a box of crayons and has evolved from there. During my childhood summers in Puerto Rico, I learned to paint from a next-door neighbor in the yard. Since then, I have used whatever means around me to make new things. It is my nature to create. Relocating to the U.S. for my adolescent and high school years, ceramics became an integral part of my exploration into other mediums.
From crayons to paint to fibers to ceramics, discovering the medium of glass has challenged me in new ways. After receiving a BFA in Glass from the Appalachian Center for Craft I relocated to Pittsburgh, PA where I continue to pursue my art. Combining my love for art with my interests in science and nature, working with glass satisfies my need as a maker and pushes me in ways no other medium has.
