A lifetime resident of the Hudson Valley Christine holds a Bachelor’s degree in design. She worked for many years in an advertising agency executing corporate graphic design and began to explore photography in the Hudson Valley as well as while travelling abroad.
After spending many years in the two-dimensional world of graphic design and photography Chris became interested in three-dimensional art. According to Christine, “It’s a whole new world to explore. While being interested in many three dimensional mediums I keep being drawn back to glass. Initially it was stained glass, I then dabbled in blown glass, and now I am fully steeped in fused glass. Glass has endless possibilities.”
Another attraction Chris has expounded on is that “There are scientific limitations that make working with glass a challenge. The aspect of this challenge makes this even more rewarding… as well as sometimes more frustrating.”

In addition to working with glass Chris works full time doing graphic design locally. She lives with her husband in Putnam County and continues to explore the Hudson Valley by cycle, car, and foot.
All Christine's fused glass are original, one of a kind, hand crafted works of art.
Each are designed, hand cut, and kiln formed in our Hudson Valley home studio using compatible glass and annealed for strength and durability. In some cases they have gone through several firings.
