For table tops and bookcases Jane has glass tea lights that twinkle and delightful, perpetually-blooming cactus gardens in diminutive ceramic planters. As collages of swirling leaves or Queen Anne’s Lace edging a roadside or mandalas in vivid palettes or tiny sailboats bobbing on waves before a seashore village, Jane’s standing art radiates magic into any room whether backlit or set before a window. Hung as sun catchers or displayed on shelves, her quartet of latticed branches celebrates the changing beauty of our four Ozark seasons.

Jane’s HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE collections also offer glass mosaics for your walls as a lovely bouquet of red tulips and a summer tree in full regalia and patch works of vibrant shapes or threads.

Jane has cultivated her talents for fused glass work over the fifteen years of her encore career practicing her passion in her home studio where she does all her designing and assembling and firing in her kilns. Quoting James 1:17, “Every good and perfect gift is from above,” Jane tells us she believes her artistic talents are gifts from God. I have personally have been inspired by Jane’s sharing her gifts in her workshops that I have enjoyed in company with other students and on my own while making jewelry I love to wear and nightlights that shine each evening in my home.

Jane is a remarkable and very popular teacher at artCentral’s summer artCamp for Youth. No surprise, for in her first career she spent thirty-five years teaching art to children and was named the Outstanding Educator of the Year by the Art Education Association of Indiana.

Beyond artCentral Jane’s splendid glass creations can be found at Local Color Art Gallery and Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin. She has also offered or is offering her art at Neosho National Fish Hatchery Visitors Center, Webb City Farmers Market where she is a frequent displaying artist, Silver Dollar City during their Fall Festival, Cecil Floyd Craft Show, as well as on her Etsy site and in her home studio.
