ARTIST RESUME:


SLIGHTLY STAINED CREATIONS: Designing and creating custom stained glass artwork such as mirrors, shutters, masks, lampshades and window panels is a passion that I have vigorously pursued for nearly thirty years; first with the copper foil technique, then the lead came method, and most recently with stained glass mosaics. The colors, textures and kaleidoscopic variations in shapes caputre my imagination and inspire my creativity more than any other art form. What a pleasure it is to transform sheets of glass into shapes of beauty. No other medium can change a window into a bouquet of spring flowers, a lamp into an artistic masterpiece, or a door into an arabesque of exotic silhouettes. My career as a stained glass artist includes exhibits in various galleries throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. I was honored with a one woman show in Boston as well as being the featured artist at the Lebron-Wiggins-Pran Cultural Center at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. as part of the Black History Month celebration. I participated in a group show at the Broome Street Gallery in SoHO with fellow artist, James Denmark, Verna Hart, and Willie Torbort, to name a few. My customer list includes: Anu, owner of the Khamit Kinks Hair Salon in Brooklyn, Leroy Campbell, a Brooklyn based artist, Charles Fuller, the Pulitzer Prize Winning author of "A Soldier's Story"; and The Goshen Temple of the Seventh Day Adventist represented by Pastor Calvin Harrison, who commissioned me to create twelve panels for his new Church in Flatbush. I have replace and replicated transoms, fanlights, and skylights in brownstones in the landmark districts of Stuyvesant Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Clinton Hills sections of Brooklyn. I have donated, over the course of five years, address transoms to Habitat for Humanity for their homes in Harlem, The Bronx, and Brooklyn.
