Lisa Gillen

It was a happy accident when Lisa first discovered glass art over 20 years ago... Her enthusiastic fascination with glass, its luminosity and color began when she was introduced to the work of a colleague's mom.

 

And it just so happened that the artist planned to retire and looked for someone to buy her tools.  Lisa embraced the extraordinary opportunity, and has never looked back.

She notes that although she began her journey with the exploration of traditional leaded and foiled stained glass, she didn't find her true passion until she discovered fused glass.

She says, "It was a whole new exciting world in which to create with sheet glass, crushed glass, paint,molds and so much more."

Lisa has studied under a number of leading glass artists including Margot Clark, Tanya Viet, Michael Dupille, and masters including Bog Leatherbarrow, Paul Tarlow and Lena Beckeus. 

She gives credit and expresses gratitude for all that these fine artists have taught her. But she also humbly admits, "A lot of my success has come through old-fashioned trial and error, and my willingness to take chances, experiment, and yes, even fail.  After all, if it doesn't turn out the way you planned, you learn from that and give it another go!"
