Pixieglas was born in 2000. After attending a workshop called "The Painting Experience" where it's all about the process and not the product, I came home eager to continue the "Process". With no drawing background, I soon became frustrated painting on paper and I wanted something that was usable as I knew none of my "paper art" would make it onto my walls.
I've always had a fascination with all things glass (stained, fused, mirrors etc.) so I headed to the art store and picked up a couple of pots of glass paint. I still have the first sets of wine glasses I painted way back then and they are still in use today.
From there the rest as they say is "Herstory". Pixieglas™ and the designs that followed are now enjoyed by people of all walks of life. My goal for Pixieglas is to have my work enjoyed around the globe and to inspire creativity in others.

Pixieglas™ is painted with LEAD FREE paints using a variety of creative designs. In addition to the use of standard paint brushes, Pixieglas™ also uses plant life, other organic and inorganic materials and most popular of all, discarded cat whiskers (Cats loose them like we loose eye lashes) to create unique and contemporary works of FUNctional Art.
I am passionate about color and the journey of self-expression through art. With over 20+ years in the field of Holistic Health and Wellness, I began painting glass in 2003 as a way to quiet my mind through this meditative process. My art is an extension of my work in the health field, as a Certified Color Therapist, this therapeutic tool allows me to work with individuals who are searching for answers to the age old question, “Who do I want to be?” By using colors to identify mental blocks I take clients on a journey into creativity and wellness through art. You can learn more about this process through classes at LEARN Jacksonville at the University of North Florida, by booking a Glas Clas™ or a private session with me.
Pixieglas™ pieces are all original, hand painted, one-of-a-kind artwork. Special glass paints are used and most pieces are then fired to fuse the paint to the glass. For Stemware this makes them top-rack dishwasher safe, although personally I do recommend hand washing.
Enjoy your Pixieglas™ and may your piece of artwork bring you many years of joy and use.
