Julia Newhouse, Mixed Media Artist, Tells Her Story











Working with stained glass is not the first area of art in which I have indulged .... dabbled, tried, experimented with all kinds, and most things tactile ... even went to school for it; worked professionally, teaching, illustrating, designing .... loved it all, every step of the way.

Combining what I know/learned/feel about design, working in stained glass provides an outlet for original, one-of-a-kind, spectacular color combo’s that beg to play with light!

What more could one ask for, really?

My husband and I live on our sailboat for 6 months out of the year, traveling 'to wherever' is the chart de jour. Our home in Annapolis is where I get my glass time in. Inspiration comes from living in the moment, where value is found in the mundane; and concepts emerge from color, texture and shape that scoot into consciousness from various daily sources.

My work is shown in local galleries, private collections, and I have a major piece at Lighthouse Shelter Meditation Room in Annapolis, MD.

About the piece:
BUBBLES
Stained glass
8"x36"

BUBBLES...
Delicate spheres - each with enough room to hold imagination.
Reflecting
Refracting
Refreshing
Revealing pure happiness in all its transparency....
