Hi, I am Kathleen! I am an artist living and working in a beautiful Hudson Valley town about an hour and a half north of Manhattan. I studied and received a bachelor of fine arts degree at Alfred University and it was there that I started learning the art of glass blowing. I say started learning because learning to work with glass is a never ending, ever evolving process. I continue to try to expand and hone my skills while incorporating my love of color and function to my work. Since being an artist is a lifestyle not just a career, I paint and draw when not in the hot shop(what glass blowers call their studio). Thank you for taking the time to visit my site, feel free to contact me with any questions about my work or commissions. Cheers and happy trails!
You will notice on my site at the beginning of each product page a notice that 10% of each sale will be donated to a climate change organization. I believe that if we all work together and make the environment a priority we can make a difference. We can strive towards and achieve a sustainable, clean, renewable future. Here is a list of the organizations I donate to, I invite you to look into them further. Rainforest Trust, Amazon Watch, Oceana, Ocean Conservancy and Environmental Defense Fund. Thank you.
