Connie has been coming to open studio at SSG for the last couple of years. She first took fusing lessons 15 years ago at our first studio downtown on Palm Avenue. Since then she has attended many classes to improve her technique.

Connie and her husband hail from Montana where she also works in glass. Living downtown from October to December she then leaves to be with family and returns from January to June.

Her glass shows in the Community Art Center. Her varied interests include photography, cross country skiing, and theater. Connie is also a football fanatic and a music lover and won the Philanthropist of the Year award in 2005 in Sarasota.
