Welcome to my online store! I'm so glad you stopped by.
I wanted to tell you a little bit about my creative space. This summer I build myself a studio to create stained glass pieces. I built it behind my old farm house, nestled in a valley in Preston County. For all the walls I used old windows. The ceiling is also clear -- talk about a bright workspace! Natural light is very important for me when working with stained glass, and upcycling materials was just as much a priority for me.
My inspiration for the works I create comes from a mix of the glass itself, other art I love, and from the nature I see here in Appalachia. I have made stained glass ramps, a lady slipper, trilliums, cardinals and more. I love the woods that surround me, and enthusiastically interpret the beauty I see into my art.
