About the Artist

Kathleen’s original wall, window and free standing glass creations span a range from realism to abstract and from casual to refined elegance. A signature of hers is to use vintage wood window frames that have often been headed for a landfill and repurpose it as the framework and an important element of her art. More recently she has been repurposing "scrap" glass from her studio to create unique glass that has become a focal element as seen in "Ripples of Clarity" which won Best of Show at the 2014 Texas Hill Country Invitational. My art is my play time, my meditation "reconnecting with me" time. I want people to feel freedom, fun and flow when they view my work.” As Kathleen have become more practiced in the art of Glass Blowing, she has been presenting these pieces as stand alone and as additional elements within her fused glass. She also teaches workshops is open to scheduling special parties and couple's nights in her glass studio as well.
