Klose to Classic

During my professional career as a Registered Nurse, I focused on “Attention to Detail, Quality, and Patient Satisfaction.”  The Art of Healing surrounded me at work and in my daily life with family and friends.


As I transitioned away from nursing, I rediscovered a love for Fine Art and began taking classes in Glass and Metalsmithing.  What a discovery! The interplay between torch and glass and metal is mesmerizing and magical, requiring control, skill, and finesse.  Design potential is endless.


As I explore this other side of Art that surrounds us everywhere, I use the same “Attention to Detail, Quality and Customer Satisfaction” in the unique pieces I make from metal sheet and wire.
