Yellow American Goldfinch

American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) held against a natural wood setting. Growing up in Northern New Jersey it was a treat to see these bright little birds perched on a tree limb. This handmade stained glass piece reflects the beautiful sights I saw growing up in the Garden State. Each mosaic includes a scriptural passage, God’s words of inspiration. As for me, this passage reminds me to hold true to God’s purpose for our lives. My hope is to share the passion of God with others through artwork.

Message: Psalm 57:2 (KJV)

Ringed Kingfisher

What drew me to the Ringed Kingfisher was it’s orange and blue complementary colors. It’s vibrant and lively colors are fitting to its name. Colors seen on the opposite sides of the color wheel are naturally found on the body of this small, rarely seen Texas river-dwelling bird. To me, it’s symbolic of opposition and unity through God’s creation. During times of isolation and social unrest, the Kingfisher reminds me of God’s all-encompassing unconditional love.

Blue Jay

Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) held against a natural wood setting. It was always a joy to see a blue jay nestled up on a tree branch. For me, seeing a Blue Jay reminded me of God’s grace. When times were hard, and worry and stress of the moment seemed overwhelming, there the little Blue Jay would be, resting on a tree branch, not a care in the world.

This handmade stained glass piece reflects the beautiful bird that brought much joy in its presence. Each mosaic includes a scriptural passage, God’s words of inspiration. This passage reminds us that God is here with us through it all.  My hope is to share the passion of God with others through artwork.

Tree Swallow

Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) held against a natural wood setting.

Often I could and would catch a glimpse of these jet-like birds flying around the community lake, the old beach we would call it, under the dock.  The swallows would build their homes out of mud, no bigger than their tiny bodies. The nests would look like little cocoons. They were enjoyable to watch. Zooming back and forth carrying food for their young. This handmade stained glass piece attempts to display to unique tiny aerodynamic stature of the Tree Swallow.
