In 2001 right after September 11th, Vickie made a life changing decision. She gave up a 20 plus year career in construction to pursue her passion for art. She had toyed with pen and ink and charcoal as well, but had always envisioned painting glass - wine glasses specifically. She took the plunge. I am glad she did, her work is fabulous!
In addition to wine glasses, Vickie paints vases, candle holders, lamps, ceiling fan shades, mugs, and more! Her colors are strong and clear, each piece has a personality of its own. Vickie's wine glasses are lead free and guaranteed top shelf dishwasher safe - isn't that awesome? The paint used in her pieces is also heat safe and microwave safe.
This wonderful artist will customize colors to match your decor. Since Vickie's Etsy store is loaded with her wonderful items, you will probably find just the perfect color and design you need!
This tall decorative bottle is priced at only $20 and could be a wonderful focal point on a special small table. I love bottles for a home accessory.
In Vickie's own words, "Glass painting explores a unique and profound paradox in art. By painting glass, I want the viewer to look at the shadow of the art as well as the art itself. Glass art is unique in that the shadow contains and expresses the composition and color of the art, a reflection, if you will, as well as a shadow. Trying to find where the shadow begins and where the reflection ends leads to the wonderfully infinite paradox that is glass art."
