Valerie got into glassblowing through her mother. Valerie?s mother was fascinated by glass blowing and in 1970 she saw an ad for glassblowing lessons. Valerie?s mother went for a few months then just started playing with it practicing and fine tuning her technique. When Valerie was a teenager she watched her mother doing it and learned by example. She decided she could do that so started by learning one item - caterpillars.
Valerie had her first order for glass from Disneyland. Over the years her glass has gone as far as Australia, Canada, Key West Florida, Texas, California and as far east as New York. She been glassblowing for just over 30 years and has worked in Disneyland on the torch in the castle and main street. She now lives in Idaho in the mountains on an elk ranch were she helps raise elk and works on her glassblowing.
