It was in Terrie's senior year at Hanover that she decided to take an art class for fun.  In that class, the students were able to work with a kiln and blow glass, as well as make leaded panels, try sandblasting, and work with copper foiling.  The creative visual-arts spark was ignited!

Over the years she has collected the materials and gathered more experience to work on bigger and more in-depth projects. She and husband, Brent (horn professor at UCA) attempt to balance work with family, including daughters Rebecca (16) and Rachel (13).
