As a staff artist for Glassmasters in New York City and Richmond, Va, and later as a freelance artist for Glassmasters, A Division of Masterswork, LLC, I gained valuable experience as a gift-ware designer. I learned how to produce marketable designs that adapted artwork from other sources and also created original designs that fit the current trends.

Here are a few examples:
