As a stained glass artist based in Philadelphia, PA I explore how I can bring new light and color to contemporary spaces. Stained glass is a unique medium in the wonder of its materials and in its unusual design limitations. I enjoy the challenge that this creates, and love the surprising beauty that results.
During my 3 years with a large stained glass studio I worked on dozens of monumental sized projects and honed my skills under some of the great artists in glass. I started my own studio in 2014 and am nearing completion of my first independent public art commission. This project is part of Philadelphia's Percent for Art initiative. The design process involved community, stakeholder, and city interactions, and resulted in a series of windows that reflect the community’s love of its natural surroundings and the joy of exploration and imagination.
I enjoyed this creative process and look forward to many more such projects. Here are some of the design and process shots I have so far. Installation Summer 2017!
