Julia has been working in glass since the early 80s, starting first with stained glass. She has studied with various instructors including Vickie Payne, through whom she is a certified instructor. She became interested in fusing in the 90s, taking classes with nationally known glass artists Lisa Vogt and Tanya Veit. Julia has been teaching both stained and fused glass for about 25 years. She teaches glass fusing and stained glass for the City of St Petersburg (FL) and has taught at William Holland for many years. She teaches a variety of fusing techniques designed to enhance students understanding of the fusing process and provide them with ideas they can use in their home studio. As she continues to expand her own knowledge, she brings new ideas and projects to her classes every year. Julias glass art is available at a gallery in St. Pete Beach FL.
