About

From Graphic Designer to Glass Artist.

I started this creative journey as a graphic designer. I worked for many years as a freelance designer and greeting card illustrator. I also organized and ran art workshops for children in various Kingston, Ontario schools as part of an Artist in the Classroom program.

I took a stained glass course in 2000 that completely changed the focus of my work. Since then I've slowly replaced my paint brush with a glass cutter, and now work full time as a fused glass artist - cutting, layering and fusing glass in a high temperature kiln.

My background as a graphic designer informs how I work around the challenges that face every glass artist. You can push the boundaries of glass art only so far before it pushes back. This is something every glass artist knows and has likely learned the hard way.

The patterns that I use for my work are all my original designs. Every piece that leaves my studio has been made by me. I am the designer, inspector, quality control person, photographer and shipping supervisor. If I wasn't having so much fun, I might ask myself for some time off.

Florence.
