Announcement   Welcome!
I make original stained glass panels and sun-catchers, carve ostrich eggs and engrave glass.

I use a hand-held, air-powered rotary tool to engrave with so the engraving is permanent and will not fade or wash off.

I will gladly personalize most items for free, as long as you only want a couple of names and dates. I'm flexible, so let me know what you'd like!

For something longer, like a Shakespearian sonnet or The Declaration of Independence, or more realistically, your wedding vows, we can come to some kind of agreement as to the cost.
I am happy to do custom work so let me know what you're looking for!

Shirl did an amazing job making the perfect wedding gift for my sister! I had an idea in mind and everyone said 'it can't be done' but she did it :) From plenty of back and forth to get my ideas and vision just right to picking the perfect, vibrant colors and including a note to my sister when she sent it off the customer service was amazing and the artwork is fabulous. Thanks so much!

About

From medieval roots to the New World...

I was born in Scotland and educated at the Edinburgh College of Art and Design where I learned how to make both traditional stained glass and woven tapestries; both traditions that were hugely popular during the medieval era. I guess I'm just (really) old-fashioned at heart!

After travelling extensively around Europe during my 20s I came to the States for 6 months to work on a yacht and have been here ever since!

I now live in West Virginia and love being within a day's drive of the fantastic glass factories that are still operating here. After many years of selling my work at craft shows and galleries I found Etsy and love how my potential customer base has expanded world wide!

I have a studio in my basement where I make stained glass panels and carve glass and ostrich eggs. I like to design my own panels and am happy to work with you to make custom work for your home.

    As a Scot living in the US I love to use celtic designs in my work, both as a stained glass artist and as an engraver and egg carver. I'm also inspired by nature and am lucky to live in wonderful West Virginia, where I see natural beauty every day.
