Hi my name is Annette Whelan and I’m a shy fused glass artist who finds her confidence in the haven of her workshop. My story of working with glass began about 15 years ago when I was walking home from work one day I wandered into an art shop, picked up some glass paints and thought…mmmm that’s interesting! And I have never looked back!
From there with the help and support of my family I left my “good safe job” and opened up my shop in June 2000. I have worked with glass in many different ways over the years, starting by painting on glass, then explored working with lead and copper foil to produce stained glass pieces before discovering my lasting passion for fusing glass, “it’s what feeds my soul and keeps me sane”.
My work can be best described as fun and funky yet beautiful and functional. The shapes are very free flowing and organic no two pieces are ever the same.
