Tish began exploring various art forms as a small child under the guidance of her grandmother, who was a gifted painter. In the years that followed she experimented with painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and fiber arts. In college she majored in advertising design where she studied typography, color theory, the history of design, art history and took numerous fine arts courses as well.
Throughout college and beyond, she continued to explore various art forms to include quilting, calligraphy, zentangle, soap making, artist trading cards and altered books. In 1998, she took her first stained glass class where she discovered the beauty of glass and knew it would become her medium of choice as well as her true passion.
After retiring from a career in public safety in Northern Virginia, she moved to Parrish Florida with her husband, and is now able to devote her full time and attention to working with glass. She currently works from her home studio where she continues to create stained glass pieces as well as both functional and decorative fused glass pieces.
Though she is versatile in her design style, she garners inspiration from the ocean; visualizing the fluid transparency of the water and its similarites with glass. Her stained glass pieces often incorporate shells, sand or other ocean elements and her fused ocean wave designs have become one of her signature pieces.
