Ben graduated with a BFA Studio Art and minor in Art History from the University of Central Oklahoma before moving to Seattle in 2017. He began working with glass over 16 years ago when his uncle decided it would be a good experience for them to learn the art of stained glass together. He has moved on from there to make decorative optical glass art.
