Patricia Doyle

I created from my earliest memories, paper, paint, crayons, markers even macaroni lol… I began my dance with glass in the 1980s while living in the Yukon. Starting in stained glass, too linear and rigid for me I moved onto fused glass and man oh man, I was hooked. Wishing for more fluidity in my work, I next added lampworking to my repertoire. Getting lost in the torch is one of my favourite places to be.

I also enjoy vitrigraph, painting abstract acrylics, silversmithing, felting, silk painting and videography. I host and produce a local cable TV show with Shaw called Artisans Alley showcasing local creatives. And one of my favourite things of all is introducing shiny new beginners to lampworking and glass fusing. I teach at the Vernon Community Arts Centre and some years at Red Deer Summer Series of the Arts.
