I was talking to one of my acclaimed artist friends recently and I told him that I wasn’t really an artist, I just like making beautiful things. He said “Marcelle that is an artist”. So I guess I accept the title. I love making beautiful pictures out of many pieces.
I hand cut every piece I use in my work. I love all the beautiful glass, particularly mirror glass of various colors and Van Gogh glass with its patterns. I often enhance my work with jewels and beads. Every piece is unique and can never really be replicated.
My last exhibit was “Trees of Life” which was well received. Although I have created many different images through the years I seem to always return to trees! I have stopped fighting this natural inclination towards trees and let myself go for it. I have done commissioned pieces but I will admit I have a very difficult time working with colors I don’t love.
