Late in 2018, I had the awesome opportunity to test my skills for the first time at a making a stained glass pet portrait… of Bizzy, a beautiful little French Bulldog. I was glad the panel turned out nice but the real joy was when I delivered it and got to meet the real thing! Read the story of Bizzy, a Pet’s Portrait

The Design phase of a project is my favorite, hands down! It is here that left and right brain work together to produce a pattern. I love the geometry of drawing angles and circles, using intersecting lines to define the shapes of the glass pieces (left brain). I also love how an image evolves on the page as I call on past memories to envision my topic (right brain). All this to say I find designing very very satisfying.
I just finished a wonderful project in time for Christmas… a 15-panel oak door with a glass mural depicting oak leaves caught up in a wind swirl. It was a delight artistically and a pleasure socially to make this for Rod and Sandra St. Coeur of Saint John. You can read the full story with photos of the making of the 15-Panel Oak Door.
Our lovely stretch of weather all through January is now, sadly, just a memory as tonight’s blizzard has arrived.
All the more reason to stay warm and dry in the studio. It’s nice to be back at it again since taking nearly a month off. Fingers that had gone soft over the break are just starting to get new callous’.
So, I guess winter is finally here. No matter, inspiration abounds and I’m already thinking spring.
