The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.

Creative Practice: I have been working as a Stained Glass Artist and Art Therapist for over 25 years.
Artist Statement: The primary focus of my work is teaching stained glass in my studio as well as throughout the states of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. I service a myriad of populations: Mass Housing Tenant Assistant Programs, libraries, regular and alternative school programs, Girl Scout groups, and home schoolers. In addition I have been commissioned by architects, interior designers and contractors for custom work.
