When we find ourselves in the midst of the fire,
the burning desires within us can be silenced.
Just as sand is beautifully transformed into glass under fire,
we too can be transformed, by hope.
As a contemporary glass artist, Terri creates glass paintings
to awaken emotions within us—emotions to inspire hope, uplift our spirits, and bring healing.

Some art collectors look at her glass art and see glass paintings—
others see glass sculptures.
Either way, they see a technique that is unlike any other glass art form.
Whether created as a commission art piece for a corporate space, public space, a place for healing,
or for a home—Terri’s desire is for her glass art to bring light into our world.
Terri’s work can be found in private and corporate collections
throughout the United States, Hong Kong, and Israel.
Terri's creativity is driven by inspiration. It comes deep from within.
If it is hopeful, if it is joyful, or if it brings peace—most likely it will inspire her.
As an artist, Terri is inspired by Renoir—his philosophy quickly became hers.
“To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them.” —Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Seeing the beauty in this world and all its wonders—Terri's art celebrates life.
This Inspired This
As you explore this website, you’ll find sections titled, This Inspired This. These are photographs Terri has taken that inspired her to create glass art paintings.
THIS INSPIRED THIS
With One Another is a glass art painting that was inspired by a garden of iris.
The iris is named after the Greek Goddess Iris,
who used the rainbow as a bridge
between heaven and earth. Today the rainbow is a covenant, a bridge between heaven and earth—
a bridge of hope and peace.
