Ilene Richardson, BFA
Fine Art Glass Artist
The Eastern Shore of Virginia, US

Ilene Richardson's Artist Studio has been located on the Eastern Shore of the US for over three decades, creating Glass Beads at the torch, Sterling Silver Bead Jewelry and mostly Stained Glass Windows. All of the artwork created is One-of-a-Kind from Original Designs.

Stained Glass Windows
The Stained Glass Windows I create are artistically created and life-like with shadows and realistic colors. My windows are not the cartoon type window that others offer for sale on the internet. I use hundreds of pieces of glass in each window, as if I'm drawing by choosing pieces for their light and their shadows to get a realistic look and then I choose the colors as an artist would choose paints. 
I was a Traveling Artist exploring the rural, southwest coastal lands of Ireland to the New Mexico home of Georgia O'Keeffe and high mountain desert mecca of Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico, a decade ago and now, usually back home exploring the East Coast of the United States, this is where I do the majority of my hands-on creativity along the Eastern Shore of Virginia in my waterfront studio.

Watercolors & drawings are used for beginning sketches in stained glass, experimenting with light and colors. Concentrating on exploration of color relationships with how color schemes in nature coexist. This helps to develop designs based on unique travel experiences and local influences of waterfront nature, boats and life.

A personal thanks to all of you who have helped to make my creative journey possible, and to those people who had the vision and desire to enrich their lives with the artwork I have created over the years.

I can only hope that my art which has enriched my life creating it,

will enrich the lives of others for years to come.
