About

How it all started...

I have been working with stained glass for over 20 years, and operated a retail giftshop from 2000-2016. I am also a fine art oil painter but the medium has taken a back seat to the glass the past few years as my glass pieces gained popularity. My former giftshop space has been transformed into a wonderful creative space where I enjoy creating unique stained glass art. Etsy has opened up a new customer base all over North America and I am so very thankful to be able to offer my art to so many appreciative people. I also live in a very beautiful part of the world where I am as close to unspoiled nature as one can get and also have the ocean to admire , be influenced by and be thankful for.Thank you for reading about me, my studio and my art.

GOOD NEWS! As of January 2019, I have opened up international shipping. However to keep shipping costs affordable I must choose airmail WITHOUT tracking abilities .

WHOLESALE
If you have a storefront and would be interested in carrying my products, please message me :0)
CARE AND INSTALLATION OF YOUR SUNCATCHERS
Please assure that you check your suction cups frequently, if they become discolored and yellow over time, replace with another quality suction cup ( not the horrible dollar store ones) I recommend replacing once a year.Make sure that you add a little water to the inside of the cup before adhering to the window, this results in a more secure suction.Avoid placing suncatchers on windows that are open and shut frequently, the vibrations could send your piece crashing to the floor.Hanging on doors or patio doors not recommended.
DO NOT USE Windex or any ammonia based window cleaner to clean your stained glass piece, the ammonia will have a negative reaction with the solder(corrosion) and it will ruin the look of the seams. Use a dry cloth for regular dusting, and polishing can be done with a high quality car wax and soft cloths. Apply wax , let dry to a haze and buff to a shine.
Privacy
Please note that privacy is very important to me. None of your information ( such as email) will ever be shared or distributed.

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to receive my order?

Orders are usually filled within 7 days of being received. However during busy times when order volumes are high, it can sometimes exceed this timeframe. From shipping, parcels can take 7-21 business days depending on parcel volume, customs delays or poor weather( parcel ships from Atlantic Canada and can be disrupted by storm weather systems during the winter months) But it is usually around 7 under normal conditions for both Canada and the US. Internationals orders can take up to 21 business days.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are considered on a case by case basis. Please message with your requests or inquiries.

Care instructions

Cleaning your stained glass piece- use a mild soap,water and an old toothbrush to remove fingerprints or spots, for regular dust removal, simply wipe with a soft cloth. Do not use products such as Windex as this contains Ammonia and will corrode the solder seams .
Hanging your piece- a suction cup is included with all suncatchers. Add a drop of water or oil to the inside of the cup. Assure your chosen window is clean. Press cup securely to the glass. Check your suction cup periodically for proper adhesion. Hot sun and time may deteriorate your suction cup. If cup shows signs of cracking or extreme yellowing, consider replacing with a new one. I do not recommend hanging a Suncatcher to any windows or doors that open.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Available soon as an add on option during purchase.

Wholesale availability

At this time, I have decided to close the wholesale part of my business.
