Throughout my life, my hobbies have involved some form of artwork. I've always enjoyed drawing
and sketching, colored pencil, pen and ink and photography. For the majority of my working years, I
worked with my hands and always enjoyed that as well.
So, when I retired from my corporate job in the fall of 2015, I put my free time to use and turned some
garage space into my own home studio. I began working with stained glass and chose the business
name LUMINESCENCE which means, “emitting light without heat” because I thought it suited what I
I had seen this stained glass overlay technique many years before and never forgot about it. I worked
for months refining the steps and developed a process that worked best for me. I began refurbishing
old farm house windows, frames, cabinet doors and just about anything with clear glass and making
them into pieces I could sell at art & craft shows. My first show was small, displaying less than 20
pieces with only easels and tables. But that show gave me my first customer and I was bitten – I was
committed to building a display tent that was so bright and colorful that it would entice any passer by.
These past few years have been such a learning process. I have been blessed to have friends and family
help me at every turn. I absolutely love going to shows and meeting people and I am humbled each
and every time someone purchases something that I created to put into their own home.
