Honest Art(ist)

So let me start by being totally honest. I've been told I'm an artist now. Accept that fact! -they say. You are NOT just a hobbiest Kim ... you create art. Sigh. It feels so weird saying "I'm an artist" - kind of pretentious in my humble opinion (IMHO). Van Gogh was an artist. Matisse was an artist. Chihuly is an artist. I'm a retired teacher. And I taught Spanish, not art! Not sure that I'm capable of helping others see the vision(s) I have in my head. But I will try and then hope that people (at the very least) enjoy seeing and touching my art.

Having said all of that. This blogging thing is doomed to failure. If I spend all of my time blogging and updating all of these darned social apps (for posterity I will mention Facebook, Instagram and Twitter because by the time you read this, they could be obsolete) - when will I have time to create art? So don't expect clever updates or that I will ever become an influencer of any kind. I think I left the last of my influence in a classroom in 2018.

Smile. Laugh. Love. Live. None of us will make it out of here alive so enjoy the trip!


Custom Glass work

Fused glass is our passion! We can recreate most of the items in our shop using different types of glass colors. We can't always create the same 'broken' parts of our hearts but can anyone really explain which parts of our heart have been broken? We are always looking for new ideas and love to create the perfect item you are thinking about.
