There is a great story behind my broken glass series. It began with a trip to Dakar, Senegal where I learned the art of painting on glass through various African artists. When I returned home, I was eager to begin a new creative endeavor. After painting on glass for several months, I laid pieces on my studio floor, and by accident my daughter stepped on a piece! I was shocked, but looked at the brokenness in a new way. The shards of glass gave me the idea that we are all broken but can be easily pieced back together through faith and strength. I use paper, glass, and acrylic paint to create this mixed media work. Shards of glass are then mounted with a special glass adhesive, creating an abstract fragmented effect. Each piece is then framed in a shadow box, giving the piece a clean, simple eclectic design that enhances any decor!
Note: Enjoy this creative risk with me! I break each piece by hand, and it will break differently every time. This painting will be uniquely yours, so the fragments will be slightly different than shown in the photos. Please allow 10-14 days for shipment, for this is a custom order.
