Artist's Profile

I am a self-taught artist who loves to create beautiful things. I have always drawn and painted since early childhood; in my early adult life I designed and executed crewel embroidery pieces which, to me, is a natural extension of painting. Four of my original crewel designs won prizes in the mid 1970s from second to honorable mention in the annual Chester County Needlework Show to benefit the Paoli Hospital in Paoli, PA.

About four years ago I attended a 6-week evening continuing education course in beginner's stained glass, and was hooked. From that day on, I haven't stopped creating stained glass pieces. Stained glass is my passion, my contribution to the art world, and I am both energized by it and obsessed with it. I hope that my love for stained glass shows in my work.

My education and background are in science and I am retired from the field of science, but I still constantly deal with the right-brain/left-brain conflict. In time, I hope that the one overcomes the other! My leisure-time interests are reading, listening to music, playing classical piano, painting, particularly with watercolors, collecting colored gemstones and American Brilliant Period Cut Glass, and drying wildflowers. I am the mother of two grown children and wife of a wonderful husband.

I have named my business "Stained Glass by Nonnie," as the name was given to me by my little brother when he was an infant, and it has always been a special nickname to me.

My collection of antique and vintage jewelry is available in my etsy shop:
