About the Artist
I am a stained-glass artist that creates 3D panels using techniques from other art forms such as acrylic painting, resin work, metalsmithing, jewelry making, welding and have even been taking classes in the UK to become certified in traditional glass painting & restoration. I have devised a new way to make stained-glass portraits by adding glass layers to build up hair strands, landforms, touchable art. My first piece was a 3D Stained- Glass Portrait of a K-pop artist I created for my daughter. This piece helped create my art career and while COVID has caused me to lose overseas work, I have begun doing more local projects and attending art shows. This year I plan to create some pieces for public art such as an outdoor stained-glass obelisk and a recycled-glass crystal panel that will hang from a tree. I will create new 3D panels and plan to explore strange new methods of taking traditional stained-glass art and giving it a modern twist. -Stephanie Coffin
