I am a teacher and artist from Milwaukee who has lived and taught in the Eau Claire area for 40 years. As an art teacher, I work with a variety of media but photography and fused glass are the main media for my own art. Glass art allows for a lot of creativity in the choice of colors and the layout of the glass before fusing. Always looking for variety in my work led me to combine alcohol ink with fused glass. This hand painting creates a unique look to each piece. The ink is dropped on the glass and moved with air, or it is set on fire. As the fire burns off the alcohol, the ink moves in surprising ways.
