I grew up in Long Beach, California as an only child & was fortunate enough to be exposed to a few key elements that would heavily influence my life: travel, food, music and art. I earned my BFA in Fine Art Photography and have explored all different mediums of art throughout the past 20 years, always looking for a something new to try. In 2014 I delved into the craft of stained glass and have since focused on it with a deep passion. In 2018 I switched career gears & left my career in corporate F&B hospitality to focus exclusively on Culotta Creations. I am highly influenced by geometric & organic architecture and seek to challenge traditional techniques. I currently live in Camas, Washington & in the rare moments I am not "stained glassing" I enjoy gardening, cooking or outdoor activity with my husband and two dogs George & Gemma.
