I am a self-taught artist born and raised in upstate New York. There, I was surrounded by the rolling hills and vineyards of wine country in the Finger Lakes region. Growing up, my interest in art became entwined with philosophy and psychology. I recognized the power of art to forge a new mentality within us.
Green Wine Bottles is inspired by my advanced degree in existential psychology, my interest in art made from found materials, and the point at which they intersect. Both fields work to find expanded meaning from the seemingly finite being or object. Both are interested in employing ones imagination to see how things are and how they can be. So it is with the word “green” that I celebrate not only ecological conservation but psychological inspiration towards one’s own personal growth and transformation.
Green Wine Bottles designs began in Seattle, Washington in 2006 where they first debuted at the historic Pike Place Market. Designs include lamps, candlesticks, bells, birds, chandeliers and more. Today, you can find me at my studio in Oregon, Wisconsin or every weekend at the Dane County Farmers Market.
