""First Gleam of Dawn"  |  Bexley, Ohio 
Terri worked with the homeowner to create a piece that would celebrate their Jewish heritage.
This glass painting symbolizes the first harvest season also referred to as the Passover season.

The journey of collaborating and creating.
It is an exciting journey for Terri - collaborating with collectors and art consultants to create
one-of-a-kind glass paintings.
   It starts with a dream, or a vision, maybe a photograph, or even a memory.
Terri listens – listens to your dreams and goals. Where will the glass painting be displayed?  What impact do you want this piece to have? What is the purpose of this piece?  What ideas do you have?  What emotions do you want to invoke?  Which resonates with you: representational or abstract? What colors resonate with you and why? And so the journey begins.

""The Beauty of Giving"
Private Residence  - New Albany, Ohio

A couple just retired and down-sized their home and wanted to a commission a piece for a living area in their new home. Terri worked with their interior designer to create a piece that would capture the essence of one of their favorite flowers and bring serenity into the room.

""Red Winter"
Ohio Small Grains Program  - Delaware, Ohio

While working with the client on a concept for this commissioned piece Terri created a piece that was a bit abstract and bigger than life - to symbolize the impact the farmers who grow Red Winter Wheat have on our economy and our food supply.

Why commission a piece of art?
Whether for a home, a business or a public space, art is deeply personal and meaningful. When you commission a glass painting, it is truly yours.  It is your story and your inspiration.

""Harvest at Dusk"
Ohio Corn Growers Association  - Delaware, Ohio

Commissioned for the Boardroom, Terri worked with the client to create a glass painting that celebrates the harvest and the excited anticipation of the reward of every farmer.

"This Inspired This."

The Process.
Terri asks questions and she listens.
Ideas are shared and discussions take place. Terri takes what she’s learned from the conversations and spends time thinking, pondering and exploring. From here she creates a Concept Board - a color illustration with samples of the glass she’ll use.  She talks through her concept and design with you, the symbolism of the piece and the connection between colors and emotions. And she listens.  Then the painting with glass begins.  She wants you to enjoy the journey.

"What delights me is the connection I make with those who want to express themselves through art –  art collectors, art consultants, interior designers, architects and space planners, those who create inspiring spaces.
My desire is to create art that evokes emotions of joy, peace and hope - for the public to become engaged in my art and get lost for a moment." - Terri
