Description Fruit colored squares give the impression of a beautiful stained glass window. Stained glass is a timeless art form used for over a thousand years in churches and other important buildings to depict religious figures and scenes. Although beautiful to behold they were also used to control light in a building rather than to let light in. Because of their lasting craftsmanship many of these original works have survived the test of time. Stained glass is also used to create lampshades and other 3-dimensional sculptures. Today stained glass works are not limited by religious themes but rather can be anything the artisan desires. From the traditional to the absurd and everything in between.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
