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 in various Kingston area 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 together 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, but 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 design department, the inspector, the detail person, the photographer and the shipping department. If I wasn't having so much fun, I might ask myself for some time off.

Florence.

Special orders welcome. Please convo me before placing an order. Although I am happy to work with you, some glass colors are simply no longer available, and I will be able to discuss this with you.

I'm always open to inquiries from countries beyond those mentioned in my shipping information. If you're interested in my work, I will look into shipping prices for you on a case by case basis.

I work in a smoke free environment.
