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.
