Biography/Artist Statement

I am brand new to making kaleidoscopes. I hope to have my first scope in production early 2021 — a handheld brushed stainless steel scope with a fluid turning mechanism. My background is in design, and I have fashioned myself as a maker and metal sculpture artist over the last few years. I made my first kaleidoscope last year in an awesome class with Peggy and Steve Kittelson (thanks Peggy and Steve!) and have been sketching ideas for kaleidoscopes since. I hope to bring something unique to the world of kaleidoscopes in each project that I do.
