While attending Kennesaw State University, I discovered clay and found that I could express my love of nature in an art form. Shortly thereafter, I was introduced to glass.  I began by making beads, but then found out about glass fusing and got hooked, big time! I have learned to combine both torch and kiln work to create unique pieces. My natural curiosity leads me to constantly experiment to see what would happen if...

After moving back to Florida in 2000, I founded the Suncoast Glass Guild for glass artists on the Gulf Coast. I also opened my own studio, Firebug Designs, in Venice, Florida in 2002 and now create fused art pieces full time. I feel fortunate that I found a way to combine my two passions, nature and glass, into an art form that I can share with others. Liana teaches jewelry classes any day of the week in studio "B".
