Recognized as an artist who enjoys the science of glass as much as the creative process, Tink is constantly pushing the limits of the medium. Best known for her intricate blown soft glass vessels and other hollow forms, her work has been featured in regional exhibits, and can be found at select galleries worldwide.
An experienced and passionate educator, Tink teaches at the School of Art and Design at the Toledo Museum of Artís Glass Pavilion and at venues worldwide. Her engaged teaching style, knowledge and enthusiasm for the medium make for classes that are full of fun, individual attention and "aha" moments. Tink shares every tip and trick in her arsenal, making certain that information is presented in various ways to meet the needs of all students.
Tink lives in Toledo Ohio's historic Old West End district with her partner, fellow glass artist and co-instructor John Cramer. They share their lives with one dog, three cats and two very exuberant cockatoos, Quimby and Cosmo.
