One day I wanted to work with my stained glass but did not have a pattern so I asked my daughter, who was 5 at the time, to draw a picture.
Immediately I set about capturing its likeness. How wonderful it was to see the world through her eyes, matching colors where possible.
This drawing now graces my studio. There have been many windows since, she is now 10, but that first window of flowers and butterflies will always be special.
"The first Window"
"My younger daughter's BumbleBee drawing"
After hanging windows throughout my house, the chicken coop, the goat-milking house and the garden, my husband suggested I capture other children's drawings and let their families share in the joy.
I now create windows reflecting children's art for others. Each window is custom-framed and I wood-burn their signatures, date and any other special requests.
These unique one-of-a-kind pieces reflecting the art of unique one-of-a-kind children have made thoughtful gifts for grandparents, graduation, first-homes, weddings, as well as gracing childrens' bedrooms or playrooms, as my children's windows do.
