I am a member of the Associated Artist of Pittsburgh and a Full-time Realtor residing in Pittsburgh. For the past 10 years I have been creating custom pieces for friends, and clients. I began painting on canvas. But after some time, I wanted to elevate my craft by creating an environment where my paintings could explode with detail, color, and a sense of liquidity – making it almost touchable. After some thought, I decided to put my own spin on the” reverse glass painting” technique from the Middle Ages. So, I began to paint on top of an old window, starting with a blackened-out background and then moving on to apply one design layer after another. While this process did produce a much different texture to my art than painting on canvas, it still wasn’t quite what I was looking for. So, I decided to apply epoxy resin to preserve my painted image. I was hooked! The painting exploded off the glass, expressing a level of detail, depth and illumination and shadowing I had never seen before. The vibrancy and color unmatched. The painting was brought to eternal life.
