Visions in Arty Glass Panes
What do you love about your job?
I get to be creative, and I love seeing my clients reaction to the finished paintings. There are very few of us in Washington State that do this for a living, and I am thankful to have a work that I love. I get to travel to different cities around Washington, see areas I would never usually see, meet new clients and do what I love like art and signs on the windows. I also make every type of sign imaginable, and I love working with wood, plastic, vinyl, gold, sandblast, you name it. It's real fun being one of the few women who have a sign business.
What or who inspired you to start your own business?
I worked full-time as a singer. When a friend had a car accident, he couldn't walk. He needed an artist to help him paint the window. I apprenticed for two years under John Barton and learned "California Style" window splash ad painting. I started part-time and was singing full-time, but now, am painting full-time. Thank you, John, for teaching me the trade.
