I have been working in glass for about 14 years. In our 20’s, Rick and I were self-employed airbrush artists, designing and producing a line of hand painted children’s wear (Rick) ladies cruise wear (me). My background was in graphic design and I grew up with 2 parents who are artists. Rick got dragged along for the ride!
After being self-employed starving artists through our 20’s, I have always taken the approach that my glass is just for fun, I didn’t make much of an effort to sell it. Now the pressure will be on, and I will have to change that approach. My goals are to create a presence in Lunenburg and Nova Scotia in general, and (yikes) probably move to some sort of online selling to help support my new adventures. I also plan to have 3 torch stations so that I can teach on a small scale.
