Step right into my stained glass studio. I create a wide variety of Tiffany Style Stained Glass Art. My location, surrounded by state parks, in Southwestern Ohio gives me great inspiration to create a wide range of original works.
I have found, as an artist, that some of the most beautiful and spiritual spots in the world are within an easy drive from my location in Xenia, Ohio. The power of nature; subtle, dynamic, both creative and deconstructive has always fascinated and inspired me. From the rolling hills of Southern Ohio to the Great Smoky Mountains: the misty mornings, the soft warm hazy air, the first chill of autumn with the crunch of leaves underfoot, all these have contributed to many decades of my landscape photography and stained glass art.
The current work that I have been doing in the flat glass medium is inspired by the gentle and beautiful landscapes of Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee. The works express my personal vision: that all things in nature have a spirit, a unique energy of sorts, and that all things are in some way connected.
Glass is the perfect medium for this work since glass has a almost mystical quality about it. It is a liquid that thinks it is a solid. Its mood changes with the changing light. It is active and dynamic one minute then becoming subtle and soft in the next moment. The piece of glass hanging in your window will change with the seasons and the light creating a new experience for you each time it comes into view.
