I grew up in Orange County, California back when there was orchards, strawberry fields, and room to roam. My mother named me Lynleigh after a meadow lake in the Sierra Mountains. Just as she was creative in my name, she exposed me to various art media growing up from watercolors and acrylics to dance and theater.
My deep connection with glass began in college when I was required to take an art class to get my Geology degree. I enjoyed creating art that glowed with light and continued with my new stained-glass hobby for a couple years until I took another glass class. That’s where I fell deeply in love with kiln-formed glass. It was like stained glass but without any constraints. Fusing glass then became my every evening, every weekend, and every holiday passion!
Twenty-five years later, my love affair with glass has morphed into my full-time profession. I can say with pride, I’m loving my gray hair and living my dream!
