A painter at heart
I started painting many years ago just for myself. I am a very critical person so of course I always found things that I needed to improve on . I started going to ceramic classes and found that I love working with the clay and watching it grow into a beautiful peice of artwork. It gave me much satifaction to know that I could create something very beautiful on my own. Coming from a very talented Grandmother and Father I guess it was a given that I would get their genes. I consider myself very lucky in that respect.
I went onto oils, I loved painting scenery at that time. I would get up on Saturday morning, have breakfast and get ready for all the art shows that would be on the Public broadcasting system for the day. I loved watching them create such beautiful paintings in oils and watercolors.
One day I was at my local craft store and found a book about painting on glass. I thought I can do that. So every Christmas I would have a holiday party and I would always give a gift to the couples as they would arrive or leave. One year it was a personalized martini glass for every women that came to the party. (They still use them to this day!) The next year, wine glasses in a Christmas design, the next a candleholder in their favorite color and so on. My friends started telling me, Margie, why aren't you selling these items.
So I thought why not indeed. So I started going to craft shows and became very successful at that. In the mean time, my daughter kept asking me why I didn't put my glassware on Etsy. Now I didn't know what she was talking about and was very busy with my craft shows so I didn't give it much thought. She kept pursuing the subject everytime she saw me though. It took me 2 years to finally listen to her and I am so glad that I did. Now I have a successful shop on Etsy that just keeps growing. I talk to very nice people who allow me to do what I love best and that is paint for them and bring something beautiful into their lives.
I love painting! I started at a very young age, drawing on an art pad. As I got older I took ceramic lessons and started my own business teaching others how to paint. I went onto to oils, acrylics and now my passion is painting on glass!
