While working on my doctorate at the University of Texas, Austin, she embarked on a life-changing artistic endeavor: crating Stained Glass. She opened Avalon Glassworks and focused on custom architectural pieces for homes, offices, and churches, as well as gallery-level art pieces. While in Austin, her works were displayed at "The Art at St. David's Hospital."
After moving to Arizona she expanded her gallery work to include fused ad slumbed glass. Again, several galleries carried her art in five genres: Native American, Southwestern, Prairie School, New Age/World Mythology, and Celtic Knotwork.
Twenty-three years later she moved to Gainesville, MO. She felt such a major change in life called for a change in the name, and thus Wild Goose Glassworks was born.
Her work is by commission. She continues the themed lines for galleries. Each design is unique and hand-drawn according to what the client wants, in whatever style desired, including but not limited to: Victorian, Art Deco, Arts and Crafts, Modern, Abstract, still life, and Celtic Knotwork.
