Annette Nilan's Profile

About

I've always been involved with a wide variety of art and creativity since I was a pup whether it involved crayons, finger-painting, or playing in the mud. As I got older, I graduated up to pencils, pastels, paint, clay, wax, photography, plus countless other things. So in early 2001 when I was introduced to a form of glass art called Lampwork that involved melting glass with a torch and shaping it to make beads and sculptures, I was hooked. I just couldn't stop myself from immediately gravitating toward sculpting fun life forms. It was amazing to be able to combine the fascination of glass and creative art with my deep love of animals... in a whimsy fashion! I like to think of them as 3 dimensional cartoon characters come to life and hope they will make others feel good, laugh, or at least smile a lot! :-)
