STAINED GLASS ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY
To express the complexities and detail found in nature, Anne has developed a multi-layered copper overlay technique for her stained glass art. The effect she achieves is shadowy and misty, inspired by the hazy hills and shadowy woodlands of Brown County.
Anne says, “I am so drawn to the utter simplicity with which the Japanese artists have been able to express the complex nature of life. I try to emulate the way in which they honor the power, beauty, fragility, and mystery of nature.
Anne describes her transformed photography as “a creative process taking the photograph into the computer and turning it into a unique piece of art.” Once it is transformed, the photographs are printed on luster paper. The paper is reminiscent of the pearl-like inside of a sea shell. The luster paper gives the images a subtle glow, somewhat like the effect Anne achieves in her stained glass.
