Stained glass is my passion
I think I have always loved stained glass. When I lived in NY city in my early twenties I spent a lot of time in the Tiffany exhibit of the Metropolitan Museum. I knew I one day would need to own a Tiffany lamp.
Years later when I had moved to New Paltz I had the opportunity to take a beginners class of stained glass. It was like relearning a skill. For the first time the creative images I had in my head weren't as good as the completed art piece. I had found my medium.
I quickly graduated from simple designs to more complex ones. My first major piece was a Tiffany style lamp. However it was window panels that I preferred creating. Within a year I had finished my first major piece. The 5ft. by 5ft. panel called The Dreamer was the culmination of a year's worth of painstaking work.
