“I create hand-painted, multi-layered glass panels that exhibit nature in deep dimension, presenting natural objects around us in a new way. My goal is to draw the viewer into the work of art, transforming a painting (a historically 2D art form) into something more. My outdoor subjects often recede into a foggy distance, creating an ethereal, almost ghostly effect.
Viewers frequently ask if a photograph has been embedded in layers of glass. But using only enamel applied by hand, I create depth using several techniques: layering, diminishing size and color, texture, and translucence. I typically use 9-12 layers of glass, then kiln-cast them into a solid panel after all layers are complete.”
