I had the opportunity to meet Shawna Hovey recently, at the Love Art! Gallery in Portland Oregon where we are both represented.

She shared with me her glass art works, a bit of her story, but most of all her undeniable passion to create and live. Working with dichroic glass is her passion and brings her great joy, which is reflected in her work. Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metal oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties (according to Wiki).

Shawna’s Words:

Born, too, as a butterfly from a Chrysalis, a journey through cancer, chemotherapy and heart failure delivered me to a new life. A life filled with brilliant beauty, great joy and heart felt thanks for the opportunity to “do what makes my heart sing” as never before. Creating with glass gives me great joy. I am inspired by life’s infinite beauty and sharing my joy with others.

You can find Shawna’s glass work at the Love Art! Gallery in Portland, Oregon, and some in her online shop, Chrysalis Dreams.

Thank you Shawna, for doing the lovely work that you do!
