“My greatest reward is to touch your heart with my artwork.”
After admiring art glass her entire adult life, Chris stumbled upon a fused glass class near her home in 2009. She was hooked within just a few sessions, and after a year, she decided to buy a kiln and start fusing at home. She took over her entire family room and most of her laundry room and started experimenting.
She has taken classes at Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center, Vitrum Studios, Weisser Glass, Salem Community College Glass Center and has studied with glass artists Linda Humphrey and Michael Dupille in their home studios.
reality and that was her reward. But several years later after she started displaying her work in public spaces, she began to receive feedback from patrons and passers-by. They talked to her about their emotions when they looked at her fused glass pieces, how her artwork resonated with them, how certain pieces spoke to them, and how they would treasure her fused glass creations in their homes. Sometimes they just thanked her for brightening a hallway. She has no greater reward than to have touched the heart of another person with her artwork.
